The first program in a new series where a guest curator examines one object from our Special Collections. We welcome the Fairfield University Art Museum’s Curator of Education and Academic Engagement Dr. Michelle DiMarzo for discussion of the library’s volumes of John Gould’s A Monograph of the Trochilidae, or family of humming-birds.
