Big Picture

For more than 46 years, Albert Kollar was collection manager of invertebrate paleontology at Carnegie Museum of Natural History. He was always eager to share his knowledge with the public, and one of his favorite things to do was to spend a day answering visitors’ questions about the museum’s collections and their own geological discoveries. Albert passed away unexpectedly at the age of 72 on April 9, 2024.
