Off the Shelf- Episode 22:CWRU Farm History with Chris Bond and Ana Locci
The Case Western Reserve University Farm is a special place for many CWRU people, faculty, staff, alumni and students alike. It's my great privilege to welcome Dr. Ana Locci, director of the farm, and Christopher Bond, horticulturalist, to Off the Shelf. For a special place, it's a special episode. I traveled the short distance from campus to the farm to record the episode, and it's the first time I've had two authors at once. Chris and Ana recently published a photographic history of the CWRU Farm, entitled Case Western Reserve University: Squire Valleevue and Valley Ridge Farms. Drawing from a rich variety of documents and photographs from the university's archives and personal papers, the book tells the history of these properties and their bequest to and use by the university community, past and present.
