Women of Carnegie's Botany Hall

Museum Studies Intern at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History - Fall 2016       

Located on the second floor of CMNH, adjacent to the North American Wildlife Section, the Hall of Botany seems like a forgotten space by the museum. Initially, I was unsure if I would find a story that genuinely interested me.  I had no idea of the wealth of research avenues that would peak my interests.
