Scientific Equipment Exposed!


A newly-mounted exhibit in Leyburn Library features antique scientific equipment from the Washington and Lee University Department of Physics and Engineering.  These items may be viewed in the Boatwright Reading Room in Special Collections, on Lower Level 1.

Some of these materials have been displayed in by the library before, while additional items were uncovered during a guided tour by Professor Emeritus Tom Williams of the Science Center “attic.”    Among the discoveries revealed during this most recent exploration was an original Michael Miley x-ray photograph of a broken foot.

If you have questions about this new exhibit, please contact the curator, Seth McCormick-Goodhart.
