South Carolina College was one of the original subscribers to John James Adubon's famous series Birds of America (1827). Feagle's gift included a set of all three elephant-folio version of Audubon's first print for the series, "The Wild Turkey," by Lizars of Edinburgh (1826), Havell of London (1827), and Bien of Philadelphia (1859). First housed in a little-visited seminar room, the three turkey prints have now been rehung in the new Feagle Hall. The prints are set off by special track lighting and make a fitting gateway to introduce visitors to the library's natural history collections.
