Purchased from the estate of: Francis Rudolf (Rudi) Turner
Bloomington, IN F. Rudolf (Rudi) Turner, 80, of Bloomington, IN. passed away January 25, 2018 in Spencer, IN. He was born in Boston, Massachusetts on September 17, 1937

Rudi graduated from Brighton high school in Rochester, NY in 1955 and obtained his Bachelor’s (1959) and Master’s (1962) of Science degrees in Biology from the University of Rochester, followed by a Ph.D. from the University of Texas, Austin, TX in 1966 where he also did a post-doc in the Cell Research Institute until 1969. Employed for 48 years by the Biology Department at Indiana University, Rudi’s expertise in Transmission and Scanning Electron Microscopy benefited many IU Biology researchers. His most famous micrographs have appeared in biology textbooks.

Rudi often combined his scientific interests with his love of art. He engaged in lapidary work and making jewelry inspired by nature by electroplating metals directly onto natural items like miniature orchids, leaves, and feathers. He had a lifelong interest in orchid culturing and breeding, specializing in miniature peloric Phalaenopsis. He generously supported local artisans and sponsored programs at WonderLab promoting archeology or science of art. He was an active member of the Lawrence County Rock and Mineral Club.

Rudi was passionate about natural history and Bloomington Indiana provided a unique environment for him to pursue his interests in archaeology, paleontology, geology, and fossil hunting while combining it with his love of canoeing, nature walks, wildlife and photography. He enthusiastically shared these interests with others. In 2013, Rudi and colleague David Dilcher donated 68 acres of land in Greene county to the Sycamore Land Trust known as the Dilcher-Turner Canyon Forest to preserve this natural wonder for others to enjoy.

This is an AUTHENTIC artifact and was legally obtained from collections that do not violate any Federal antiquity laws.
