Pictures from the Field


Walter Deane [1848-1930]

In the youth of Walter Deane, in those glorious ancient days,
Foreign plants had not crept in, with insinuating ways.
Every plant was then our own, from each rootlet tip so small
And the Old World floral tramps did not cut a dash at all; -
All our plants were indigene
In the youth of Walter Deane.

- poem by Edward Lothrop Rand [1859-1924]
Read at the New England Botanical Club Meeting, March 1900
