The Clark’s reading room and a couple of its offices have deep window wells, open to the basement level from the ground floor. They regularly trap small mammals who fall into them unawares, perhaps when being chased by a large bird or even by one of the Clark cats (ahem). In the last month, the reading room window wells have been frequented by two baby possums (or maybe one, who made the same mistake twice). Luckily for us, Eric Gill Project Archivist Jennifer Bastian has been there to save the day both times. This latest baby possum visited us on Friday afternoon, right at the end of the day.
