Lynn Margulis poster

The Lynn Margulis collection at the Sustainability Resources Center in the Pickering Library has been honored with a feature news story at the University of Massachusetts.

School of Education Professor Doug Zook and Pickering staff member Yelena Alekseyeva-Popova worked collaboratively to create the book collection and the accompanying display in honor of Lynn Margulis. Dr. Zook worked closely with Dr. Margulis during her time at BU through their Microcosmos Program for teachers.

The poster begins, “Lynn Margulis (1938-2011) was one of the most extraordinary scientists and thinkers in American history. In 1999, she was awarded the highest recognition that a scientist from the United States can receive — the National Medal of Science from President Clinton.” Click the image above for a closer look, and visit the Sustainability Resources Center to check out this circulating collection.
