Lois Hole Campus Alberta Digital Library

Lois Hole was a champion of teaching, learning, and research. She was someone who appreciated how nature feeds the body and soul, which is why Karvonen Films Natural History Collection is a fitting part of the Lois Hole Campus Alberta Digital Library. Appreciating nature takes many forms. For Lois Hole it meant growing vegetable and flower gardens. For Albert Karvonen it means watching closely and capturing what he sees on film.
