A Legacy of a Lifetime of Collecting: The Carl & Marian Rettenmeyer Story

Homer Babbidge Library, Norman Stevens Gallery
Opening October 28, 2018 through Spring 2019

Carl and Marian Rettenmeyer spent more than 50 years studying army ants and their guests. This new interactive exhibit takes you to the jungle to tell the story of their lives and extraordinary research, and into the Biodiversity Research Collections at UConn to explore collecting, curation, and the vital role of biological specimens in scientific discovery.

This new AntU traveling exhibit was developed by the Departments of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology, Digital Media & Design, and Connecticut State Museum of Natural History at UConn
