This summer the NHM Library and Archives welcomed 15 students from Harvard University, who were here as part of a eight week summer school. The students spent the first two weeks in London at the Museum, with the remaining time spent at Oxford University.
Whilst at the Museum the students worked for the WCP, transcribing letters from the NHM collections and repositories worldwide. These were written by a variety of different authors, some of the braver students even taking on Darwin's untidy hand!
