The Collection includes her newspaper columns and writings on Florida nature and wildlife from the 1970s to 2003. Two books have been compiled from her columns, Nature is Wonderful, in 2006, and Tide Lines: The Sea and its Inhabitants, in 1982.

As a biology teacher and administrator in Chicago’s public schools Ms Walther developed an interest in marine biology. Upon retirement she moved to Sarasota, on Florida’s Gulf coast and four years later in 1977 she became a volunteer columnist for the Sarasota Herald-Tribune.

Her essays, titled Tide Lines, were published on Sundays and covered various subjects concerning nature and the environment, including narrative descriptions of animal behavior, mollusks, manta rays, oarfish, and an occasional column on a historical figure or event.
