Amherst College Bicentennial Tusks up Tee

Regular price $14.00


Orra White Hitchcock (1796–1863) was one of the first women in America to work as a botanical and scientific illustrator. She often collaborated with her husband and Amherst College’s third president, Edward Hitchcock, to create scientific illustrations for class lectures. One of her large-scale illustrations is of Elephas primigenius—a woolly mammoth. Here, Orra White Hitchcock’s work is reimagined for Amherst’s Bicentennial, along with a Latin translation of the College’s new rallying cry, “Tusks Up!”
