Puzzle exhibit opens Friday at Linda Hall Library

A reporter from the Kansas City Star visited the Library on Wednesday, January 28, 2015, to view the installation of the new exhibition, Ingenious Objects: Geometric Puzzles by Stewart Coffin. The exhibition displays handcrafted puzzles from the collection of Kansas City native Dr. Norton Starr. The exhibition also features landmark mathematics books from the Library’s History of Science Collection and patent drawings of famous puzzles. In this video, Dr. Starr describes his puzzle collection that will be part of the exhibition.
