Behind the Scenes at the American Philosophical Society's Jefferson Exhibit (May 12, 9am-12:45pm) (Class is Full)
The American Philosophical Society is the nation's oldest learned society, founded by Benjamin Franklin in 1743. On this trip to Center City, we will see APS's current exhibit, Jefferson, Science, and Exploration and take a behind the scenes tour of the Library to see some of their vast and historic collections that complement this exhibit. Thomas Jefferson is best known as the author of the Declaration of Independence and as the third president of the United States. What is not so well known is his lifelong passion for science. His expansive interests ranged from paleontology to botany to climate science. Jefferson, Science, and Exploration highlights objects from the APS collections that place Jefferson within the scientific community of his time, including his portable polygraph, bones of a mammoth excavated in 1806, and natural history watercolors by William Bartram and Titian Ramsey Peale. We will meet at the Arboretum and take a small bus. Park your car in the meadow to the left of the entrance kiosk.
