Exhibition: The Rockefeller Beetles


Wednesday, November 7, 2018 (All day)

Repeats every day until Fri Nov 30 2018


Harvard Museum of Natural History, 26 Oxford Street, Cambridge, MA

Over the span of 90 years, banker and philanthropist David Rockefeller collected beetles from around the world, eventually building a personal collection of more than 150,000 specimens. In 2017, his longstanding support for the entomology department of the Harvard University Museum of Comparative Zoology culminated in a gift to the museum of this extraordinary collection. Join the Harvard Museum of Natural History in celebrating this invaluable gift with a visit to The Rockefeller Beetles—a new exhibit that will feature hundreds of specimens from Rockefeller’s collection and recount the story of a man whose childhood pursuit grew into a lifelong passion.
