Exhibition: The Rockefeller Beetles
October 20, 2019
Over the span of 90 years, banker and philanthropist David Rockefeller collected beetles from around the world, eventually building a personal collection of more than 150,000 specimens. In 2017, his longstanding support for the entomology department of the Harvard University Museum of Comparative Zoology culminated in a gift to the museum of this extraordinary collection. Join the Harvard Museum of Natural History in celebrating this invaluable gift with a visit to The Rockefeller Beetles—a new exhibit that will feature hundreds of specimens from Rockefeller’s collection and recount the story of a man whose childhood pursuit grew into a lifelong passion.
