My Mad Love for Photocopying

Most mornings, I work at Carnegie Hall, copying, smiling, and helping my work supervisors and professors with clerical work. I really appreciate the job because it has helped me to get to know a really cool individual I like to call Mr. Copy Machine. My job has also helped me develop a genuine appreciation for photocopying.

Prairie Plant Banners in Burling Library

Wed, 2012-09-05 08:14 | By Anonymous (not verified)

The Center for Prairie Studies and the Grinnell College Libraries have collaborated in the installation of two dramatic photographs of prairie plants that have been hung on the first floor of Burling Library, on the east and west brick walls (south side). Created by the Land Institute in Salina, Kansas, these photographs portray the plants with their astonishing root systems that help the prairie survive fire, cold, and severe droughts like the one this year. We want to thank Milton Severe of Faulconer Gallery and the Facilities Management staff for their help with this project.

Griswold College

We recently received an interesting question regarding the relationship between Griswold College, in Davenport, IA, and Grinnell College, and whether Grinnell had ever been called Griswold. We had never heard of such a direct relationship between the two institutions, which made it an intriguing question and a fun, albeit brief, research project.   As some of you may know, Grinnell College began its existence as Iowa College and was founded in Davenport in 1846 by a group of missionaries from Massachusetts who called themselves the Iowa Band.
