Sir Isaac Newton Room used for NOVA interviews

Grace K. Babson purchased the fore-parlour which had been part of Newton's St. Martins Street house. It seems to have been the only surviving part of the house where Newton lived (1710-1725) and Frances Burney later wrote. The room was disassembled and later recreated in the Babson Institute Library which was opened in 1939. The building of the Horn Library in 1980 gave the room a new home as the old library was completely rebuilt and renamed Tomasso Hall.

Last summer found a video crew using the fore-parlour for interviews to augment a story on Sir Isaac Newton. Naturally, I haven't been told, but I will guess that "Newton's Dark Secret" is the completed piece.
