In 1971, John Stauffer “Jack” McIlhenny (1909-1997) transformed LSU Libraries with the gift of the personal library of his uncle, E.A. “Ned” McIlhenny of Avery Island, LA. The exhibition “Flora & Fauna at 50: The E.A. McIlhenny Natural History Collection” commemorates this landmark acquisition. The exhibition is free and open to the public, and runs through the Spring 2022 semester.
The E. A. McIlhenny Natural History Collection holds thousands of titles published over five centuries, written in a variety of languages and treating a vast array of subjects.
