Abstract:

Papers reflect Wilson's contribution to horticulture and botany as a plant collector, especially during his expeditions to China, Korea, and Japan. Plant collection notes from all his trips are included. Also some material relating to the administration of Arnold Arboretum and other activities at Harvard University. Extensive correspondence, dating from 1899 to 1930, exists, including original outgoing letters to Arnold Arboretum staff, mainly Charles Sargent; copies of letters to horticulturists, such as J.F. Rock, David Fairchild and Frank Meyer; and incoming letters from the Veitch family and Frank Meyer. Other material includes field and plant notes and diaries about Wilson's collection; manuscripts of both published and unpublished works; account books; shipping lists; maps; Chinese and other travel documents; letters of recommendation, certificates, examination and other documents relating to his early work as gardener; and extensive clippings, mainly from Boston newspapers.

In 1996 C.S. Sargent's letters to Wilson were removed from the Arboretum correspondence file and placed in sub-series W XIII E "Letters received by Wilson and Mrs. Wilson, 1907, 1916-1930." Several of Wilson's notebooks were at some point in time catalogued and shelved in the library. In 1980 they were moved to the archives.
