Design in Research

Lucille Vinyard Collection Extracts

The Design in Research exhibition is dedicated to inspiring the researcher and natural facts sleuth in all of us. To document a passion for scholarly purposes, one can begin with an informal hunt for information at a local library, or digital repository. 

Upon second glance, Lucille Vinyard annotated brochures from national conference she attended, wrote about daily events in the field and advocated for action in letters of concern as a Sierra Club member. 

The power that a personal collection wields is in its design. What the collection contains keeps the body of work relevant for future researchers. The power of Lucille Vinyard's vision extends over academic disciplines and schools of thought. To save the growth of redwood trees is to sustain the value of life in a community.
