Lloyd Library and Museum Debuts New Collection The Lloyd Library and Museum has completed processing the Varro E. “Tip” Tyler Papers. The collection consists of the manuscript records of Tyler (1926–2001) and is approximately fifty linear feet and ninety-eight boxes. Tyler, who served as the dean of the School of Pharmacy and Pharmacal Sciences at Purdue University, studied medicinal and toxic constituents of higher fungi, phytochemical analysis, alkaloid biosynthesis, drug plant cultivation, and herbal medicine. Tyler also developed an interest in the study of forgeries— particularly forged stamps—and contributed substantial literature on the subject.
