Abstract: Approximately 1000 botanical drawings, most in pen and black ink on paper, of the structural parts of angiosperms and some gymnosperms, by Arthur Monrad Johnson. Many of the illustrations have been published in the author's scientific publications, such as his "Taxonomy of the Flowering Plants" and articles on the genus Saxifraga. Dr. Johnson was both a respected botanist and an accomplished artist beyond his botanical subjects.

Acquisition Information

The collection was a gift from the UCLA Botanical Garden/Herbarium to the Biomedical Library sometime in the late 1980s.

Biography

Arthur Monrad Johnson (1878-1943) was Professor of Botany at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and director of the Campus Botanical Garden from 1927 until his death in 1943. Before that he held academic positions at the University of Minnesota, Harvard University, and the University of Wisconsin.
Born in 1878 in Norway, he came to the United States with his parents while still a child. He received a B.S., M.A. in Arts, and Ph.D. in Botany from the University of Minnesota, and had further art instruction from Minneapolis Institute of Art and San Francisco Art School. Dr. Johnson's scientific publications included a major textbook in taxonomy and important articles on the genus Saxifraga. His drawings, watercolors, and oils of botanical subjects and landscapes were displayed at invitational exhibits in a number of major American cities.

Scope and Content

The collection contains 84 folders of approximately 1000 hand-drawn illustrations, plus a few reprints and documents. The drawings are mostly in black ink on light or heavy paper; a few are on cardboard, another few lightly tinted in watercolors. A preponderance of the illustrations deal with the structural parts of angiosperms, with fewer focused on gymnosperms. The order Rosales contains the greatest number of drawings, keeping with Dr. Johnson's special interest in the family Saxifragaceae.
The organization of Dr. Johnson's drawings for this finding list presented some problems. The collection came to the library in 49 packets, accompanied by a list of subjects included in each packet. Twelve of them named specific topics such as Buds, Fruits, Shoots, Tendrils; four large groups were labeled "Miscellaneous"; the rest bore taxonomic labels at levels varying from Sub-class to Order to Family. Upon investigation of the packets it became clear that over the years many had become quite mixed in their contents. One further obstacle arose from the outdated systems of classification used by Johnson: mainly that of Adolph Engler (A. Engler and E. Gilg, 1924), sometimes combined with Richard Wettstein's subclasses (R.V. Wttstein, 1924).
The present organization of the drawings maintains Dr. Johnson's first twelve categories. As many items as possible in the "Miscellaneous" folders were identified and placed with their appropriate fellows. For the taxonomic classified portion we followed the system used by the Integrated Taxonomic Information System (ITIS) (http://www.itis.gov) and the USDA Plants Database (http://plants.usda.gov./). To accommodate the current cladistic approach to systematics, the names and relationships used on the Angiosperm Phylogeny Website (APW)(http://www.mobot.org/MOBOT/research/APweb/) have been noted when they differ from those given in ITIS. Thus, terms in brackets are not accepted by APW, and notes such as "APW: Rhamnales = Rosales" or "APW: Crassulaceae assigned to Saxifragales" can be found throughout.
The collection is organized into the following series:
  • Series 1. Anatomy. 1 folder
  • Series 2. Buds. 1 folder
  • Series 3. Flowers. 1 folder
  • Series 4. Fruits. 4 folders
  • Series 5. Inflorescence. 1 folder
