Other Events and Notes of Interest

PEANUT BUTTER CLUB: September 2

Presents the video “The Rise and Fall of Penn Station”on Friday, September 2, at noon, in Redfield Auditorium, 45 Water St., Woods Hole. Just 53 years after the station’s opening, the monumental building that was supposed to last forever, to herald and represent the American Empire, was slated to be destroyed. Sponsored by the Information Office. Coffee, tea, and cookies served. Donations accepted.

PEANUT BUTTER CLUB: September 9

Presents the video “The Forgotten Plague” on Friday, September 9, at noon, in Redfield Auditorium, 45 Water St., Woods Hole. The battle against tuberculosis had a profound and lasting impact on the country. It shaped medical and scientific pursuits, social habits, economic development, western expansion, and government policy. Yet both the disease and its impact are poorly understood: in the words of one writer, tuberculosis is our "forgotten plague." Sponsored by the Information Office. Coffee, tea, and cookies served. Donations accepted.

WOODS HOLE HISTORICAL MUSEUM

An exhibit of nature drawings by students of Julia S. Child opened September 6 in Gallery One of the museum.  This annual event is the final exhibit of the season for the museum and will be open until October 8. Ms. Child is a biological illustrator and her work has appeared in books, scientific journals, and textbooks. Her most recent is a children's book about honey bees, "Varun's Quest," by Timothy Goldsmith, a Yale University biologist. She has taught at the Children’s School of Science for many years. She also teaches a nature drawing class for adults, whose works are shown in this exhibit. Ms. Child works in pen and ink, colored pencil, and watercolor, as well as as in graphite and a carbon dust technique. Most of the students’ drawings are in colored pencil and were drawn from live or preserved specimens. The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. – 400 p.m. The museum galleries will be closing for the winter on October 8. The museum’s archives are open to the public by appointment on Tuesdays and Thursdays year-round. The museum is at 579 Woods Hole Road, next to the Woods Hole Library. Admission is free; donations are appreciated.
