Jepson Field Book volume 18 page 140
Description:
Stanford Univ.  Mar. 23, '08.  from members of the Board. Abrams was there but did not speak. Middleton who sold the land to the state spoke. Also several others. Went to dinner with Pierce; he has been working a lot on the effects of smelter fumes on vegetation. He regards it as harmful! [That sounds naive to one who has seen the effects as at Keswick but Osterhout [?] says not harmful! O. is retained by the smelters.] At Keswick he remarked that the Poison Oak was not injured, which Platt had told me about some years ago. ::::::::: Berkeley, Apr. 2, 1908.  - Freak Quercus Douglasii tree on ranch of E. Meader, Fair Oaks. Acorn cups very much enlarged & "hillocky". Leaves small but normal. -- E.B. Babcock brings material to me. Grant Wallace, local naturalist, says four oaks there: White Oak (Quercus Douglasii), Live Oak (Quercus Wislizenii), Black Oak (Quercus Kelloggii), and Swamp Oak (Quercus lobata). ---------- - Quercus agrifolia and tent caterpillars -- clusters can be burned out with a rag saturated with gasoline.
