Congratulations to PhD candidate Kristel Schoonderwoerd (Friedman Lab) awarded Harvard Library's Philip Hofer Prize for her essay, "Winter twig keys: Manuals for tracing time".
The Philip Hofer prize is awarded each year to a student or students whose collections of books or works of art best reflect the traditions of breadth, coherence, and imagination exemplified by Philip Hofer, A.B.'21, L.H.D. '67, founder and first curator of the Department of Printing and Graphic Arts at Houghton Library and secretary of the Fogg Art Museum.
Kristel is currently working with the Harvard Library to create an online exhibition about winter tree identification guides.
