Centennial Play Brings Alexander Von Humboldt to Life:
He traveled around the world and is considered the founder of modern geography. Charles Darwin once called him the âgreatest scientific traveler who ever lived.â
Among his other claims to fame: being this universityâs namesake. This fall, HSU students and faculty will pay homage to Prussian naturalist Alexander von Humboldt with a play commemorating his life and work.
The original production premieres this November as part of HSUâs 2013-14 Centennial celebration, a year of events and activities commemorating the universityâs first 100 years.
