Jepson Field Book volume 27 page 138
Berkeley ----------  importance. I have worked over these things laboriously and conscientiously and I cannot see how C. douglassii can be any good as a species distinct from pungens, if Parry is right in so naming his spms., -- and he had gone to Kew to look up specially the Chorizanthe types. C. diffusa Benth. as rep. by Heller 6750 Monterey is the same also. Possibly C. douglasii and C. diffusa are a shade nearer each other than to pungens. C. andersonii, type, I should cheerfully put in with the others, i.e. with diffusa and douglasii first of all and the whole with pungens. ::::::::: July 1913 ----------  - Funston, Frederick "Was with the Death Valley Exped. as botanist. Funston: "Dikeman, I do not know any more botany than you do". Dikeman: In that case you don't know any".  Funston: "That's it". Dikeman found him drunk in Pah-rump Valley, an empty wine bottle beside him, and took him in charge. Funston: Dikeman, if you had a daddy in Congress who got a job for you at _125.00 per mo., wouldn't you be a fool not to take it". Dikeman: "Well, you would be". Funston: "That's me". Funston's father was "Old Farmer Funston" in Congress from Kansas. After the Philipines war Funston the younger was to be run for Gov. of Kansas. Mark Hanna was afraid he'd carry the state and take a Dem. legislature in with him, so that there would be Dem. senators elected and so went to McKinley and asked the President to appoint him Capt. or Colonel in the Regular Army, which was all Funston wanted or expected. McKinley made a slip and made him General. Funston is a newspaper general. He always stands in with the newspapers and is his own press agent. He always has been and it is this thing which has made him." -- James Dikeman, member of the Death Valley Expedition. 14 July 1913.
