Loren Eiseley in The Immense Journey

Through their generosity, Loren Eiseley Circle members provide unrestricted support to nurture the Penn Museum’s world-renowned stewardship and groundbreaking teaching and public outreach. Along with all of the benefits of our Supporting Circles, receive exclusive event invitations and special access to our collections. Loren Eiseley—University of Pennsylvania Provost, Benjamin Franklin Professor, anthropologist, ecologist, science writer, and poet—believed that life’s mysteries were infinite and was committed to exploring them. The Loren Eiseley Circle, composed of high-level annual donors to the Penn Museum, upholds his legacy of thoughtful inquiry into the history of humanity.
