Description
Papers belonging to American horticulturalist and nurseryman Benjamin Hodge.
Background
Benjamin Hodge (1797-1868), moved with his family to Buffalo, New York, as a small child. He was captured by the British during the War of 1812, later began a career as a horticulturalist and nurseryman, and in 1826, opened the Buffalo Nursery. His son, Lyman Davis Hodge (born 1835) moved to St. Paul, Minnesota, where he entered business as a spice and coffee merchant and in the last years of his life planned to move to the Pacific Northwest. Other branches of the Hodge family lived in Ohio and Michigan.
