Abstract:

A botanical and horticultural record begun in the 1880s as an adjunct to the Arboretum's living collection, library, and herbarium, the photographs document the living collection; the areas of the world from which plants were collected; the plant collectors and their expeditions; and horticultural and botanical techniques and practices. Photographs also record the development of taxa in the Arboretum, a landscape designed by Frederick Law Olmstead and Charles Sprague Sargent. The historic collection has about 10,000 prints of living plants from all over the world, ca. 1870-1940. The views collection, also ca. 1870-1940, contains about 3,000 prints of plants in their native habitats. People, events, and customs are depicted in many of the landscapes, among them China, Tibet, Australia, Japan, India, Turkey, Cuba, and England. About 600 images of U.S. and foreign arboreta, gardens, and parks date from 1900-1940.

Smaller collections include botanist J. G. Jack's approximately 100 pictures taken in Colorado, 1898; botanist Susan Delano McKelvey's approximately 300 pictures of the southwestern U.S., particularly habitat images of yucca plants; the Frank Meyer collection, 1905-1916, of 250 images of agricultural techniques in China, Korea, Siberia, and Turkestan; plant explorer Ernest Henry Wilson's approximately 7,700 images, primarily from Asia, Australia, New Zealand, and Africa of collecting expeditions taken between 1907 and 1922; the plant explorer Joseph Rock's 1,000 views of flora in Burma, China, France, and Hawaii. A lantern slide collection includes all botanical and horticultural subjects, and about 1,000 35mm slides depict activities at the Arnold Arboretum and at other arboreta and botanic gardens.
