posted on Nov. 15: Bertrand Russell’s Odyssey: From Lenin to Lennon


[img_inline align=”right” src=””]While it is possible to find slices of Einstein's brain in the McMaster Health Sciences Centre, the Russell Archives in the
Mills Memorial Library contains all of philosopher Bertrand Russell's “mind.” From Lenin to Lennon, you'd be amazed at what you can find.

You can see for yourself by visiting the Bertrand Russell's Odyssey exhibit at the McMaster Museum of Art from Nov. 12 to Jan. 7.

And you'll have an opportunity to learn more about Russell at a lecture being presented on Thursday, Nov. 16 at 7:30 p.m. in Convocation Hall (UH-213). The lecture, sponsored by the Faculty of Humanities, the University Library and the Museum of Art, will be presented by Ray Monk.

Ray Monk is one of Britain's most respected biographers and lecturers and author of Bertrand Russell: The Ghost of
Madness, 1922-1970
. He will talk about the philosopher's life and work.

Monk's lecture will mark the official opening of the Bertrand Russell Research Centre.
