Famed gorilla researcher Dian Fossey founded the Karisoke Research Center in Rwanda 50 years ago this week. For years, wildlife photographer Bob Campbell documented Fossey and the mountain gorillas she studied, introducing her to the world in the pages of National Geographic magazine. Now Campbell’s archives are part of the University of Florida Smathers Libraries' Wildlife Conservation collection. His photos and belongings are featured in an exhibit on the first floor lobby of Smathers Library East and online at http://exhibits.uflib.ufl.edu/BobCampbell.
