At the heart of every great collection, be it art, books, or specimens, lies the soul of a passionate collector. David Rockefeller had a passion for beetles and collected more than 150,000 specimens, beginning as a seven-year-old naturalist and continuing throughout his life. This fall, his collection arrives at Harvard, where it will be housed at the Museum of Comparative Zoology. Brian Farrell will discuss the development of the collection and its significance to understanding Earth’s biodiversity.
