NHM History

The Natural History Museum collections began with the botanical research of Dr. George E. Post in the early 1850s and the ornithological research of Dr. W. T. Van Dyck in the 1870s. Both professors were founding fathers of AUB in the 19th century, but they continued their research activities well into the twentieth century. Since then, the collections have grown as a result of work by successive AUB faculty members and students, as well as through the acquisition of other collections.

In the 1970s and 1980s events in Lebanon and the region prohibited field work, but research and collecting resumed in the 1990s.
