Ray Nichols, one of the exhibition's designers, compares wounds received in the line of duty with Lenore Rouse of the Rare Books Department who sponsored the exhibit and turned out a great crowd for the opening. It appeared the Lenore won the 'big scar' of the night award.

Nina Matheson designed labels for the cheese in typefaces reflecting each one's country of origin naming each cheese with a different typeface. Nice APHA touch.
