Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation


McDevitt departs Institute

1 August 2023

Jeannette McDevitt left us at the end of July so that she could spend more time with her growing family. She joined us in 2011 as a library assistant and became assistant librarian in 2012. Although we will miss McDevitt, we wish her well and thank her for her years of service to the Institute and our Library. An interview with McDevitt will be in the fall issue of our Bulletin.
