About this event:
Hunting for mushrooms is, almost by definition, a local undertaking, but it became international toward the end of the 19th century, as collectors attempted to gather and chart the distribution of fungal species worldwide. Join Brad Bolman, 2023 Lloyd Fellow and Postdoctoral Member of the School of Historical Studies at the Institute for Advanced Study, to explore how Lloyd Library co-founder Curtis Gates Lloyd and many others developed extended webs of correspondence that set the foundations for contemporary fungal science. Registration required.
