Is that old? Nellie will want to see it!

Nellie Dumas’ love of history and antiques is well known to her colleagues at the David Axelrod Institute (DAI), who are always on the lookout for an old piece of laboratory equipment at the Institute to add to the collection she maintains on her own for Wadsworth. Nellie’s office contains old microscopes, various pieces of equipment and an old scale. What Nellie would really like to do is find antique microscopes from the original Wadsworth Laboratory. She doesn’t know where they are but would like to add them to the Wadsworth collection.
