The Ocular Heritage Society meeting

On Thursday, April 7th the NECO Library and Archives hosted a table during the welcome reception at the Franklin Institute for attendees of the annual Ocular Heritage Society meeting.  Librarian/Archives Coordinator Heather Edmonds and Director Kristin Motte shared books from the library’s Special Collections as well as some instruments from the archives, including a previously unidentified item which attendees speculated was a precursor to the BIO . 

Also on display at the reception were eyeglasses from different periods of history which are a part of the Franklin Institute’s collection.  Faculty member Blair Wong coordinated the reception.
