The Natural History Collections includes over 50 beautifully illustrated botanical and zoological charts, dating from the late nineteenth century through the 1950s. Many are from Jung-Koch-Quentell, a German company renowned for early scientific illustrations and models. The charts are backed with linen and originally hung from wooden dowels. During Fall 2013 a group of three students- Drew Schaeffer (13′), Eli Shadrach (14′) and Stephanie Barron (14′)- were responsible for photographing the illustrations. After taking digital images of the lithographs Stephanie Barron (14′) edited and uploaded the images onto the online catalog (see below). Through their efforts the complete lithograph collection is now available on eHive.
