A Historical Perspective on Chicago Area Botany

A historical perspective on Chicago area botany.
The Historical Section of the Botanical Society of America wishes to continue its sponsorship of Symposia and/or Special Lectures to highlight the importance of Botany in the Americas. In 2004, the BSA Historical Section sponsored a Symposium on "Liberty Hyde Bailey's Legacy of Scientific Outreach," at the Agricultural History Society Symposium in conjunction with the Centennial of the College of Agriculture at Cornell University. This year our symposium highlights the contributions of Chicago Area botanists in conjunction with the annual meeting of Botany 2007, in Chicago, Illinois. Our half day session will feature distinguished speakers, William C. Burger, Clement W. Hamilton, Nels R. Lersten, Manfred Ruddat, John Doebley, and James A. Shapiro, who will evaluate and review the contributions of the Field Museum of Natural History, the Morton Arboretum, the University of Chicago, the Botanical Gazette, and Chicago’s connections with Nobel Prize winning scientists George Beadle and Barbara McClintock. We anticipate and encourage discussion and socializing during the break and the question/answer period following the presentations.
