Beautiful Science: Worth a Visit
Bingham, Frederick M.
Physics Teacher, v51 n3 p159 Mar 2013
For those in the profession of teaching physics who reside in or plan to visit the Los Angeles area, I would highly recommend a trip to the Huntington Library in San Marino, specifically to a permanent exhibit entitled "Beautiful Science: Ideas that Changed the World" in the Dibner Hall of the History of Science. The exhibit contains original books and manuscripts from the library's own collections. The sheer magnitude of human achievement represented here and the amount of effort and money that must have been required to amass these books boggles the mind. (Contains 1 figure and 1 supplemental file.)
