It's Cool Inside!
We also have a penguin (naturally, doesn't everyone?), but he did not come to us as part of our world renowned polar exploration collection. This Adelie penguin in its juvenile plumage was given to Sherman Adams (Class of 1920), Eisenhower's White House Chief of Staff, by Admiral Richard Byrd. Adams passed "Byrd's bird" on to Dartmouth in 1964, where it took up residence in Special Collections. It is most at home in the Rauner Rooke[ry] Reading Room.
So, get out of the heat and enjoy the cool comfort of Rauner this summer.
