Abstract:

The distinction between the two groups of papers reflects both their provenance and the way the materials have been maintained by the Gray Herbarium over the years. "Manuscript case" materials comprise mostly Gray's writings, and originally were probably a part of the Herbarium's office files. "Green box" materials are largely personal in nature, including correspondence of Jane Loring Gray and were assembled and donated to the Herbarium by her. Related material from other donors, such as Walter Deane, have also been included in this collection. The manuscript collection contains drafts of works both published and unpublished which Gray wrote for scientific and general audiences; reviews by Gray; notes for Harvard, Lowell Institute and various club lectures; account books, 1838-1891, for personal accounts and accounts with the Herbarium; and certificates, degrees and awards. "Green box" materials contain biobraphical information such as an autobiographical manuscript, travel journals, 1838-1839, other individuals' reminiscences of Gray and clippings, correspondence with family members, colleagues and scientific societies and serveral notebooks containing descriptions of specimens in various herbaria, mostly in Europe. Correspondence documents the lifestyle of upperclass Bostonians, and provides insights into faculty activities at Harvard as well as describing certain events such as the Wilkes Expedition.

The collection also contains Jane Gray's letters to her family while in Europe, her diaries, and materials pertaining to the book, Letters of Asa Gray, which she edited. In addition, the collection includes ten daguerreotype portraits of botanists.
