The Naturalist

 

Wednesday, November 12, 4:30 pm
on the Norlin Library fifth floor

 

Join a conversation on the intersection of Colorado flora, CU collections and botanical research with key figures from the University of Colorado Boulder Libraries, Museum of Natural History and Herbarium, as well as the Denver Botanic Gardens. This event, a celebration of the 60-year career of CU-Boulder Professor Emeritus and Curator­Emeritus William A. Weber will take place on the CU Boulder campus on Wednesday November 12 at 4:30 p.m. on the Norlin Library fifth floor.

 

Now holding the unofficial title of oldest active professor with the longest tenure at the University of Colorado Boulder, retired professor of botany William A. Weber started at CU-Boulder in 1946 as an instructor in the Department of Biology.  He was appointed Professor of Natural History in 1962, when he also joined the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History as curator of the fledging herbarium collection of plant specimens. That collection now holds over half a million specimens and was named The W.A. Weber Collection in 2012.

 

To honor his lifetime of achievements, the University Libraries selected Weber as a “CU Legend” which is the third installment in this ongoing series. Now showing on the Norlin Library 2nd floor southwest through 2015, the exhibit, titled “The Naturalist,” follows the legendary CU botanist from his youth in Brooklyn to his appointment at CU-Boulder and subsequent travels across the globe, cataloging and classifying flora and lichen. A series of large color posters depict how Weber made the flora of Colorado his life’s work and brought it to the attention of the world. 


Professor Weber’s career was launched when he was gifted a small microscope at the age of five. Depression-era New York city provided an ideal setting for a young naturalist who frequented the city’s parks and natural history museums, joined walking clubs, and even founded his own bird club. He continued his education formally with a B.S. degree in botany from Iowa State University (1940) and M.A. (1942) and Ph.D. (1946) degrees in botany from Washington State University.


Since moving his family to Boulder in 1946, Weber has engaged actively in service to his community, profession, international scientific societies, and on various expeditions. In 1951, he entered the world of lichenology, which he calls the “most significant event in my life.” This continuing passion resulted in the 1998 publication of “A Rocky Mountain Lichen Primer” with former CU-Boulder Chancellor James Corbridge.


In 1957-58 Weber received a National Science Foundation Senior Post-Doctoral Fellowship to spend a year at the Riksmuseum in Stockholm conducting research in Sweden, Norway and Denmark. In 1964 he participated in an International Expedition to the Galápagos Islands and, over a period of nine years, collected and published the first studies of their lichens and bryophytes. Subsequently he did intensive work in Australia, New Guinea, Siberia, Scandinavia, the American Arctic, and Nepal. His study of historical plant geography in these regions has led to his own hypotheses about plant origins and distribution.


Weber was elected a Member of the prestigious Linnean Society of London in 1984. 


He is co-editor, with Ron Wittman, of the “Colorado Flora Series.” which has been in continuous publication since 1953, with the most recent publication in 2012 in two volumes: “Colorado Flora: Eastern Slope” and “Colorado Flora: Western Slope.” This work remains the most authoritative contemporary reference to the flora of Colorado and each volume fits easily into a backpack for research in the field.


Weber has remained steadfast in his dedication to his students, emphasizing field studies and mentoring many – many of whom went on to become leaders in their own fields. This unwavering dedication was recently honored with the Wright Family Foundation William A. Weber Endowed Fund for Children’s Education in Natural Sciences, which will be administered by the CU Museum of Natural History to support natural science education programs for children that foster exploration, appreciation and love of the natural environment in all its diversity.


Weber donated to the University Libraries Special Collections an extraordinary 14 volume set on the disciples of Linnaeus who traveled the world collecting and documenting flora and fauna. Weber also gifted Special Collections with a sepia photograph of Alfred Russel Wallace, co-publisher along with Darwin on the theory of evolution. The photograph is accompanied with a postcard written by Wallace to Theodore Dru Alison Cockerell, an entomologist and professor of systematic zoology at the University of Colorado, from 1906-1934.  Cockerell, along with Junius Henderson, helped establish the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History. Although retired, Weber, who still resides in Boulder, visits the campus frequently. He will join the event in his honor, which is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.


Please join the University of Colorado Libraries and the Friends of the Libraries to celebrate Weber’s lifetime achievements on Wednesday November 12 at 4:30 p.m. on the Norlin Library fifth floor and enjoy the following speakers: James F. Williams, dean and director, University Libraries; Rebecca Hufft Kao, manager, conservation programs, Denver Botanic Gardens; Erin Tripp, assistant professor, curator of botany, CU Museum of Natural History Herbarium; and Pat Kociolek, director, CU Museum of Natural History.

Rex Burns, Author

 

Friday, May 18, 2012


Wolf Law Building, Wittemyer Courtroom
University of Colorado Boulder

 

Friends of the CU Libraries at the University of Colorado Boulder will host a timely presentation entitled, "The Transition to E-Publishing: One Writer’s Experience," on Friday, May 18, at 7:00 p.m. in the Wolf Law Building on the Boulder Campus. 

 

Local author, Rex Burns, best known for his Gabe Wager crime series, will tell us what it’s like to move books from the bookshelf to cyberspace.  This topic should interest a broad audience since, according to a recent Pew Research Center study, computer tablets and e-book readers continue to surge in popularity, with nearly one-third of Americans already owning at least one of these digital devices.


Rex Burns’s Gabe Wager and the Devlin Kirk mystery series are set in and around Denver, Colorado.  The Alvarez Journal, his Edgar Award–winning first novel, introduced Gabe Wager, a Denver police detective working in an organized crime unit. Burns continued this police procedural series with ten more novels.  One of the Wager mysteries, The Avenging Angel, was made into a feature film, Messenger of Death, starring Charles Bronson. 

 

Rex Burns, who once hosted STARZ Encore Mystery Channel’s Anatomy of a Mystery, is emeritus professor and President’s Teaching Scholar at the University of Colorado Denver where he taught Creative Writing and English.  His numerous short stories and non-fiction articles have appeared in scholarly and in popular publications.  Mr. Burns’s most recent fiction includes a series of stories in the Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine.


This free-and-open-to-the-public event will take place in the Wolf Law Building Wittemyer Courtroom on the CU Boulder campus. Free parking is available west of the Law School in Lot 470. A light catered reception will precede the program.

Fall Treasures | Saturday, Sept 24, 10am | Humanities 150

 

Einstein & Bohr

Mr. Barron’s presentation features the duo’s relationship, and their thoughts and practices regarding children, peace and justice, walking, sailing and their work habits.

 

Reared on fairy tales, brilliant physicists and radical thinkers Albert Einstein and Niels Bohr learned at an early age to believe impossible things. That faith in wonder carried over to their work and nurtured a sensibility that found expression in large and small things throughout their lives.

 

The presentation illustrates not only the work of these great scientists, but their humanity as well.

 

A light catered reception follows the program.

 

Pay parking available at Euclid Avenue AutoPark and Macky Lot 380.

Friday, May 14, 2010, 7:00 p.m.

University of Colorado at Boulder Campus

Michael McGarrity

The Kevin Kerney novels include Tularosa, Mexican Hat and his latest, Dead or Alive. McGarrity’s books are set mainly in New Mexico and mix several elements: the early novels combine razor-sharp procedural detail with a gripping, gritty edge, while later ones swap the noir for a full-palette portrayal of a cop’s domestic life.  McGarrity exhibits a remarkable ability to make the landscape and people of the Southwest vital characters in his stories.

 

Michael McGarrity holds a BA with distinction in psychology and a master's degree in clinical social work.  His career in criminal justice includes work in corrections, law enforcement, and serving as an expert witness to the court.  As a trained psychotherapist, McGarrity specialized in the treatment of high-risk and at-risk populations.

The Friends of the University of Colorado Libraries will hold its annual Information Day at Norlin Library on the CU-Boulder campus Wednesday, January 10, from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event will be in the Center for British and Irish Studies on the fifth floor of the library. Information Day is free and open to the public and no reservations are required.

 

Jim Williams, dean of the CU Libraries, and Claudine Garby, president of the Friends, will welcome participants. Attendees will view "Going to Extremes: Polar Exploration," an exhibit prepared by the Special Collections department in recognition of the 2007 International Polar Year. Guests also are invited to visit a "smart" classroom where reference librarians will provide computer training.

 

At noon, guests will return to the Center for British and Irish Studies for a light, catered lunch.

 

Following lunch, David Hays, CU Libraries archivist, will speak on the World War II U.S. Navy Japanese/Oriental Language School Archival Project. The project's first archival papers were received in 1992 with the acquisition of materials collected by Capt. Roger Pineau USNR and William Hudson. This information on graduates of the U.S. Navy Japanese/Oriental Language School at CU-Boulder from 1942 to 1946 was collected for inclusion in the official World War II naval history record.

 

The Japanese/Oriental Language School Archival Project has continued to acquire papers, photographs, correspondence and records in the form of major collections and small manuscripts. These papers document the involvement of the school's graduates in World War II activities such as code breaking, translation and intelligence; postwar teaching of Japanese language and culture in higher education; and reconciliation projects with Japan. The ever-growing archive is available for use by scholars in Japanese history; World War II history, diplomacy and foreign affairs; and East Asian language and culture.

 

The purpose of Information Day is to inform citizens that Norlin Library is accessible to them and to familiarize people with how to use the library, the largest facility of its kind in the Rocky Mountain area.

 

The event is co-sponsored by the Daily Camera newspaper. Pay parking is
available in the Euclid Avenue AutoPark near Broadway.

Friday, 7:00 p.m.
Center for British & Irish Studies
Norlin Library

Enter the library on the West side of the building on Norlin Quad.

 

A catered dessert reception will begin the event at 7:00 p.m. followed by guest

presenter, Baine P. Kerr. This event is free and open to the public.

 

Baine Kerr will speak on “Conflict and Character: Wrongful Death and Harmful

Intent” in which he will draw from the subject matter and situational issues in two of his

books (“Wrongful Death”, and “Harmful Intent”). Both books can be purchased at the

event and the author will be available to sign them.

 

Mr. Kerr is a Boulder attorney. Outside his practice, Mr. Kerr’s main interest is

fiction writing. “Wrongful Death”, his second novel, “a stunning, inspiring read, strong

and very moving” (Pubisher’s Weekly), draws on his experience litigating wrongful death cases in Colorado and on a recent year in Bosnia and The Hague. This book was selected by the Chicago Tribune for Twelve Best Mysteries of 2002.

“Harmful Intent,” a medical thriller, was published in 2000; that year he was a

finalist for the Colorado Book Award for Fiction. Baine Kerr has published a book of

short stories titled “Jumping-Off Place.” He was one of 100 authors selected by the

National Endowment for the Arts for a 1983 fellowship in fiction, and has been

anthologized in Best American Short Stories, the University Press of Colorado, and

elsewhere.

 

“Baine Kerr is simply one of the best lawyer-novelists ..." (S. Turow)

COLLEGE OF MUSIC

Entrance to the library will be through the west door. The presentation, the first of several CU-Boulder events commemorating what would have been Glenn Miller's 100th birthday, will feature Norman Leyden relating anecdotes about the big band era with an introduction by Alan Cass, director of the Glenn Miller Archives.

 

Leyden, an early associate of Glenn Miller, has conducted and arranged for artists including Mitch Miller, Gordon MacRae, Ezio Pinza, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Arthur Godfrey and Sarah Vaughn. He is a graduate of Yale University and holds master's and doctoral degrees from Columbia University.

 

Leyden began his professional career as a college student playing bass clarinet with the New Haven Symphony. During five years of military service he served as an arranger with the Glenn Miller Army/Air Force Band in England and France. He became chief arranger when Tex Beneke reorganized the Glenn Miller Orchestra in 1946. He then became a staff conductor for RCA Victor and composed and arranged music for Walt Disney's "Cinderella," "20,000 Leagues under the Sea" and "Alice in Wonderland."

 

Leyden advises musical groups around the world on the big band sound and is much in demand in both classical and popular fields of music. He has guest conducted more than 40 American symphony orchestras as well as many orchestras in Europe.

Leyden has been the associate conductor of the Oregon Symphony Orchestra for 33 years. A PBS special on Glenn Miller featuring Leyden and the U.S. Air Force Academy Falconaires debuted on national television in August 2000.
