Who wants to research Wool?

So we have this cool wool collection in our Special Collections Department (cheers Tami) - the provenance of which is spotty in my knowledge...the University had a wool lab for a long time, and it recently closed and was demolished (I think). There was work on a 3D tour of this place, should look for that and talk to the Ag Librarian, (cheers David).

Anyway, Wool has been a major thing at UW so maybe we'll start to see a theme.

'Ah Wilderness'

The title Ah, Wilderness! derives from the oft—quoted quatrain of Omar Khayam:
“A book of verses underneath the Bough,
A jug of wine, a loaf of bread—and thou
Beside me singing in the wilderness——
Oh, Wilderness were Paradise enow!”

Eugene O’Neill titled his comedy “Oh, Wilderness!” when he completed it in 1933, however, the producers, the Theatre Guild, persuaded him to change the title to Ah, Wilderness!
