Remember back in August when we shared a profile of C.J. Hibbard, photographer for the Department of Botany? Through the use of a ledger titled “Receipts and Disbursements of the Geological and Natural History Survey Funds from August 1, 1872 – July 31, 1906” contained in Box 2 of the Inventory of the Minnesota Geological and Natural History Survey papers, we were able to trace the details of Hibbard’s employment. And now, with the click of a button, you can too!
We are excited to announce that the first collection of materials included in the Exploring Minnesota’s Natural History project is accessible in the UMedia Archive. Explore Survey correspondence from the 1890s, or track Survey expenses in the ledger:
