On March 28, international agriculturalist and "father" of the Svalbard Seed Bank in Norway, Dr. Cary Fowler visited Indiana University to participate in a Q&A screening of the documentary Seeds of Time.

As a guest of IU Libraries' Wylie House, Dr. Fowler was able to interact with multiple educational areas during his two days on campus.  Shown here, Dr. Fowler discusses the new seed library offered at Wylie House with the director of the historic house museum and its outdoor interpreter.
