Title:
Jepson Field Book volume 18 page 66
Description:
Berkeley  a pamphlet entitled: --  Tadeo Haenke, escritos precedidos de Algunos apuntes para su biografia y acompanados de varios documentos illustrativos, por M.V. Ballivan y Pedro Kramer. La Paz, 1898. It contains miscellaneous writings of Haenke and also a list of his MSS in the National Library at Bogota  There is also a lot of Haenke material preceded by a considerable biography published in vol.1. of the National Library archives of Buenos Aires. When I first spoke to Moses of my interest in this botanist, he laughed and said: Haenke? "Ah. Yes -- he was the fellow who got left!" (At Cadiz!) ::::::::: January 1, 1908.  - There are 2 Big Trees (Sequoia gigantea) near Botany Building, just across roadway west. Planted in 1901 (or one year earlier maybe), about 1 ft high at planting, maybe 18 inches. I have now driven a redwood stake at base of each tree, 2 or 3 feet from trunk, and between the trunk and cement sidewalk north. The stakes are driven down flush with the surface of the ground. They are to serve as bench marks for rates of growth in height.  Measurements taken Dec. 24, 1907. Tree nearest Bot. Building:  Height = 13 feet, 9 inches.  Girth at 1 ft. above ground = 2 ft., 1 1/4 in. Tree furtherest from Botany B'ld'g.  Height = 12 ft., 6 in.  Girth at 1 ft. above ground = 1 ft., 7 1/4 in.
