The Biological Sciences Greenhouse at OSU has been fortunate to have multiple bloomings of the Titan Arum, aka, the corpse flower. They have its smaller but also smelly cousin, the Voodoo Lily. From its bruise-colored bloom that resembles a corpse, to its stench of rotting flesh, this tropical flower masks its beauty to attract its pollinators.
Civic leaders, friends, and acquaintances turned out Friday afternoon to remember former federal district court judge Robert M. Duncan. Judge Duncan died earlier this month at age 85. He served the city and state’s legal community for five decades and is remembered for his 1977 landmark decision ordering the desegregation of Columbus City Schools.
