Researchers in Special Collections

Those researchers came from far-flung places such as Melbourne Australia, Cambridge England, Nuuk Greenland, Lenhartsville Pennsylvania, Hanover Pennsylvania, Lansing Michigan, Halifax Nova Scotia, Cambridge Massachusetts, and from various communities around the North Country.
