Not only do our archives hold many interesting pieces of military, architectural, and local history, we also collect and protect scientific history.

This herbarium was collected by Andersonian Dena Bleckley while she was a student at Winthrop University. These flowers date to 1919! The book contains many samples of plants and flowers gathered from near the Winthrop campus.
