Skeletons change their closet
On Tuesday, 14 employees and students moved carefully packaged skeletons and bones from 219 Science II to their new home in the Bessey Hall addition. The assortment, used for human anatomy classes, included real skeletons and bones acquired when the school was called Iowa State College (pre-1959). Mary Madsen, a teaching lab coordinator in genetics, development and cell biology, organized the transition to the new lab space in Bessey.
"I thought it respectful and necessary to hand carry these items over to the new labs," she said.
