History
Laurie Stewart Radford, curator from 1936 to 1942, wrote seven articles for the 1984-1986 issues of the Friends of the Herbarium newsletter. Each article focused on a specific era in the development of the herbarium. In 1998, she updated the articles and compiled them into a single 50-page history of the NCU Herbarium. This history spans from 1908 (the year in which a formal herbarium was created) until 1998. The document, below, can be viewed in its entirety or as individual chapters. Each file is in PDF format.
