Cleofé Calderón - Brasil 1979, 0
About the Project
Unfortunately, it is sometimes hard to make ends "meat" doing the research you love. Fortunately, Cleofé Calderón had professional training as a chef and was a skilled cook. After an extended trip to Brazil in 1979, Calderón moved to another office in the U.S. National Herbarium and turned to catering for a short period of time in order to support herself. Apparently, her skills were well known throughout the herbarium, as attendance spiked at the Friday afternoon tea times when it was Calderón’s turn to bring refreshments. This transcription project is just one field book of notes from her long 1979 trip to Brazil. Help the Archives make Calderón’s important research accessible to a wider audience by transcribing this project. Though Calderón’s handwriting can be challenging to read, you can view how volunpeers have transcribed her previous projects.
