Jepson Field Book volume 18 page 192
Curiosities of Bot. Lit.  "This form [Quercus Emoryi] which connects the white-oaks with the black-oaks, is of the greatest interest to the student but annoying enough to the systematic botanist" -- Trans. Acad. St. Louis, vol. 3, p 394 (1877), the paper on the oaks by Geo. Engelmann; see also his Coll. Works, p. 401. ---------- - Cupressus goveniana dwarfs sent from Carmel, hills easterly of Allens Ranch, 1908, by Miss Elizabeth Reed. About 8 inches high, the crowns rounded with perfect branching main arms to trunk like an oak!! No cones! :::::::::  Berkeley, 1908  Subjects for Students - Leaf Development. Cf. Lewis Am. Nat. 41, pp. 353, 431. - Why are there no seedlings of Alder in the canon? - Seedlings of Umbellularia. ---------- - Brandegee, Mrs. K. -- talks too much, criticizes too freely. R.L. Pendleton in just now. Mrs. B. told him Heller was no worthy botanist or words to that effect and spoke her criticism of him very freely and adversely. Now think of thus taking the whole world into her confidence on personal matters and speaking so to a stranger at first meeting and a High School boy at that! I told the boy we needed here in California (without referring to Mrs. B) to spend all our energies studying the native plants. -- Apr. 18, 1909.
