Lincoln-Darwin Day

Today being the 200th anniversary of the births of Abraham Lincoln and Charles Darwin, in case you're looking for a way to celebrate around Boston today, may I suggest:

- "With Hayseed in My Hair": Abraham Lincoln and Massachusetts, an exhibit at the Massachusetts Historical Society. Opens today, and will be open Monday-Saturday, 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM through 30 April.

- "Harvard's Lincoln," an exhibit in the Edison and Newman Room and Harvard's Houghton Library. Open until 25 April during Houghton's regular hours.

"'There is grandeur in this view of life': The Origin of Species at 150", an exhibit in Houghton's Amy Lowell room. Open until 28 March during Houghton's regular hours.
