Moths and larva and . . . oh my!

During the summer of 2012, the UMD Department of Entomology donated several papier-mâché models of silkworm moths and larva to the University Archives. Maryland Agricultural College (now UMD) purchased these models around 1891 from the workshop of French anatomist and naturalist Louis Thomas Jérôme Auzoux. I put together this small exhibit to publicize the acquisition and history of these interesting learning aids.
