Glass Flowers Remain In University Museum

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Denying all previous rumors that Harvard museum treasures had been moved to places of safety, Dr. Thomas Barbour '06, director of the University Museum, yesterday stated that the famous glass flowers collection will not be removed from its present place. "This unique collection is of a most extremely fragile nature, to move it would be little less destructive than anything which could happen to it, except perhaps a direct hit by a bomb" Dr. Barbour explained.

"While some progress has been made toward segregating rare and irreplaceable specimens in the museum", he continued, "nothing has as yet been moved from the several departments of the museum, nor is any such move contemplated under existing circumstances." Earlier rumor reports has stated that the glass models of flowers were about to be moved to Petersham.
