December Map Displays

December Map Displays: Happy Birthday, Indiana

Hannah Hilleson, student-assistant in the Geospatial Center & Map Collection, created this map showing famous people born in Indiana. The map commemorates Indiana's "birthday" (admission to the Union) in December 1816. The map reveals the birthplaces of famous Hoosiers in many fields of public life. This map marks Hannah's last project for the GCMC due to her December graduation. Hannah has worked in the GCMC since the fall of 2002.

The December "Map of the Month" is the National Geographic sixtieth anniversary edition map of Pearl Harbor.

Visit the GCMC on the second floor of Bracken Library to view these displays and many others.
