Curious Footprints: New Book by Nancy Pick and Frank Ward about Amherst College's Dinosaur Tracks and Natural History Collection
Few people realize that Amherst College holds the world’s largest collection of dinosaur tracks. A new book explores how an evangelical minister (and college president) named Edward Hitchcock assembled that collection in the mid-1800s, while arguing that the tracks were made not by dinosaurs but by gigantic ancient birds. Curious Footprints: Professor Hitchcock’s Dinosaur Tracks and Other Natural History Treasures at Amherst College ($20, paper, 121 pp., Amherst College Press, Amherst, Mass. 2006) combines a charming biographical sketch of Hitchcock, written by Nancy Pick, with Frank Ward’s stunning color photographs of the college’s broader natural history collections. In his images, Ward captures the humor in a pair of dried pufferfish and the mystery in a shrouded skeleton of a gibbon.

Anti-Slavery Talk Given at Amherst College to be Preserved by Library of Congress
The African Section of the African and Middle Eastern Division of the United States Library of Congress has selected the audio recording of a February 23 Amherst College talk by activist Francis Bok for inclusion in its historic collection of Internet materials related to the crisis in Darfur, Sudan. The talk was recorded by the Amherst Recording Council (http://www.amherst.edu/~arc ). ARC was founded by Nick Doty (Amherst ’06) in the spring of 2004 to record lectures and events on campus, so that the college might have “a record of the various and interesting goings on” and “remember as an intellectual community, including students, professors and alumni, the richness and diversity of opinion, polemic, reflection and creativity that we are so fortunate to possess.”
