Abstract:

This is a collection of chiefly letters and botanical notebooks. Lecture notes and Engelmann's doctoral thesis are among the earliest papers. A series on herbaria and collectors includes plant exchange lists and other records concerning the Bernhardi and Engelmann herbaria and early plant collections coordinated by Engelmann in the western United States. The botanical notebooks are primarily notes on species from the botanical literature, herbarium specimens, and live plants in field and garden. Drawings and manuscripts by Engelmann, Arthur Schott, Paulus Roetter and others, and correspondence are found throughout.

The correspondence (primarily letters to Engelmann) relates to botany, botanical surveys and expeditions sponsored by the Smithsonian Institution and other U.S. government agencies. Letters discuss the following expeditions: the Emory expedition in New Mexico, the Fremont expedition in the Rocky Mountains and California, Hayden expedition on the upper Missouri River and Colorado, and the Nicollet, Powell, Simpson, Wheeler, Whipple and Wilkes expeditions. Many of the letters include descriptions of local and national politics. There is extensive correspondence with Smithsonian representatives.
