Eleven Harvard students arrived from America this week to begin two weeks of work the NHM Library & Archives. The students are here as part of a eight week summer school, the first two weeks in London and then the rest of the time in Oxford.

 

During their time with us in the museum, they will work on transcribing Wallace letters from the collections as part of the Wallace Correspondence Project

 

The students are in the UK for a total of eight weeks and are funded by the David Rockefeller International Experience Grants Program (DRIEG). After they finish at the NHM next week they are attending the Harvard Summer School Programme course called "An exploration of evolutionary biology" at Oxford University.

 

For many of them this is their first experience of London and the UK, so thankfully the weather has finally turned summery for them!

 

We thank them for their hard work over the next two weeks and wish them luck for the rest of their trip.

Today marks the end of an annual two week summer visit from a group of Harvard students.

 

 

Each year a group from Harvard visit the UK as part of a two month summer school which includes visits to Oxford and London. During this period they spend two weeks here in the NHM Library & Archives working on the ongoing Wallace Correspondence project. They are each given a collection of Wallace letters to transcribe during their time here, providing invaluable support to the ongoing project.

 

 

The Wallace Correspondence Project commenced in October 2010 and aims to finish in October 2013.  For more information about this exciting project visit the Wallace Correspondence Project official website.
