Terra, Oregon State University
November 2013

I had the opportunity to profile an undergraduate researcher for Terra’s website. Terra is Oregon State University’s research magazine that highlights the amazing science going on at the school.

SCARC, Oregon State’s Special Collections and Archives Research Center, is home to a number of rare books that are important pieces of science’s history. This post highlight’s one of the collection’s many volumes.
