Will Beittel 1940-1994

Abstract: Lecture materials, clippings, propagation and planting notes, and photographs relating to trees and shrubs growing in Santa Barbara County, and especially plants grown by Will Beittel, former Santa Barbara City Arborist and Nurseryman at UCSB.

Acquisition Information

Materials acquired from the Dept. of Biological Sciences. Photocopies of additional materials received from Susan Chamberlin September 2008 and copied from files on the campus lagoon at the Cheadle Center.
This series, formerly the Will Beittel papers (MS.09) was transferred from the Cheadle Center for Biodiversity and Ecological Restoration, University of California, Santa Barbara, to the UC Santa Barbara Library Department of Special Research Collections, August, 2016.

Biographical Note

Wilbur (Will) G. Beittel was born March 2, 1913 in Philadelphia. After attending NYU and Oberlin College, he began a music career in 1936 as a composer and arranger for the Lucky Strike Hit Parade and CBS Swing Session. He also wrote for various motion picture studios up until he switched careers around 1955 after attending Pierce Agricultural College.
Beittel moved to Santa Barbara and became the City Arborist until 1963. He lived at horticulturist Francesco Franceschi's original home and garden (now Franceschi Park), overseeing the plants there and using the grounds as the city's nursery, where he propagated and introduced many exotic species to Santa Barbara. He grew plants for the street tree program, public parks, and other civic properties, propagating between 4,000 and 5,000 plants per year. In 1963, Beittel became the Senior Nurseryman at University of California, Santa Barbara. He continued growing unusual exotic species which he planted around the campus grounds, many which are still there today. Among Beittel's noteworthy contributions to horticulture are several books that he authored: Santa Barbara's Street and Park Trees, Santa Barbara's Trees, and Dr. F. Franceschi, Pioneer Plantsman. He co-wrote Trees of Santa Barbara with Katherine Muller and Richard Broder. Beittel also taught several popular classes through Adult Education. Beittel passed away in 1999 at the age of 86.

Vernon and Mary Cheadle 1936-1994

Physical Description: 11 linear feet
Abstract: Correspondence, teaching materials, research materials, photographs, scrapbooks, and artifacts documenting Vernon and Mary Cheadle's years when Vernon was Professor of Botany at UC Davis and when he was Chancellor at UCSB

Immediate Source of Acquisition

This series, formerly the Vernon and Mary Cheadle papers (MS-07) was transferred from the Cheadle Center for Biodiversity and Ecological Restoration, University of California, Santa Barbara, to the UC Santa Barbara Library Department of Special Research Collections, August, 2016.

Biography

Vernon Irvin Cheadle was both an academician and administrator at several colleges and universities across the country, but he is best known for his role as Chancellor of UCSB from 1962 to 1977. Cheadle was born in Salem, South Dakota on February 6, 1910. As a high-school and college student, he competed in track and field events and was also a member of the basketball and football teams. He attended South Dakota State University for one year before transferring to Miami University where he received a B.S. (magna cum laude) in 1932. In 1932 he was accepted to Harvard University and he received an M.S. in 1934 and his Ph.D. in botany in 1936 under the mentorship of Ralph H. Wetmore. After graduating from Harvard, Vernon Cheadle spent six weeks on a collecting trip in Cuba. Many of the specimens he collected are still preserved in his vast plant specimen collection in the Cheadle Center for Biodiversity and Ecological Restoration at UCSB. While on his collecting trip, he was offered a position in the Department of Botany at Rhode Island State College, an appointment he began in 1936. He was Professor and Chair of the department from 1942 to 1952 and also served as Director of the Graduate Division. From 1944 to 1946 he served as a U.S. Navy lieutenant in the Pacific theater.
During 1950-51, Cheadle spent a sabbatical year at the University of California at Davis. He was attracted to Davis because he wished to collaborate with Dr. Katherine Esau on their mutual research interest, vascular tissues in higher plants. He met Dr. Esau, an internationally-known botanist at Harvard while she was there on a Guggenheim Research Fellowship. After returning to Rhode Island, Cheadle was invited back to Davis where he served as Department Chair from 1952 to 1962. He also served as the Acting Vice Chancellor from 1961 to 1962, just prior to his appointment as Chancellor of the Santa Barbara campus. During his tenure as UCSB's second chancellor, the number of academic disciplines on campus increased from 36 to 100, and the student enrollment grew from 4,700 to more than 12,000. In 1979, UCSB's administration building was named Cheadle Hall to honor Vernon Cheadle's exceptional leadership during the campus' formative years. Cheadle retired in 1977 and returned to the laboratory full time to resume his life-long studies on the tracheary cells, the water-conducting cells in higher plants. In addition to his strong interests in botany and research, Cheadle continued to be active in university and community affairs. He also continued his interest in sports and began competing in Master's Track and Field meets, setting many national records in the shot-put and discus throw. Cheadle passed away in 1995 at the age of 85.
Mary Low Cheadle was born in Rhode Island in 1915. She graduated from Rhode Island College in Providence, and became a teacher in the Kingston, RI, public school system. She and Vernon married in 1939, while Vernon was on the faculty of Rhode Island State College. After they moved to Santa Barbara in 1962, Mary made deep connections in the community and at the University--she was always a fully engaged partner in Vernon's work. Mary felt a special connection with Davidson Library, and she was a member of the Friends of the Library for many years. She chaired the group from 1988 until 1991. In 1994, she created the Mary Low Cheadle Endowment for Special Collections. Her UCSB service also included membership on the UC Santa Barbara Foundation's board of trustees, the University Art Museum Council, and the Faculty Women's Club. She was named an Honorary Alumna of UCSB in 1990. After her husband died, Mary Cheadle established numerous gifts in his memory, including support for the University Art Museum, the vocal music program, student athletes, and the Vernon and Mary Cheadle Center for Biodiversity and Ecological Restoration, established in 2005.

Olivia Converse 1939-1971

Physical Description: 4 linear feet
Abstract: Correspondence, manuscript, artwork and photographs related to Olivia Converse's writings about Mexican plants.
Language of Material: Languages represented in this series: English, Spanish, Nahuatl.

Acquisition Information

This series, formerly the Olivia Converse papers (MS-04) was transferred from the Cheadle Center for Biodiversity and Ecological Restoration, University of California, Santa Barbara, to the UC Santa Barbara Library Department of Special Research Collections, August, 2016.
The collection came to UCSB through professor C. H. Muller, a friend and colleague of Converse. Muller was one of three people named in Converse's will who had the power to make decisions about her unfinished manuscript and botanical drawings. The two others were Annetta Carter, a botanist at UC Berkeley, and Isabel Kelly, an anthropologist in Mexico. It is clear, from correspondence in the Muller papers (see MS-01, box 2 folder 36) and letters in this collection, that Muller intended to offer all of Converse's papers and drawings to the Hunt Institute in Pittsburgh. However, after most of the material was consolidated at UCSB in 1987, Herbarium Curator Wayne Ferren made the decision to keep the collection at UCSB. The original set of drawings and one box of papers resided at the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden library, where Muller's wife Katherine was director until 1975. There is no documentation to indicate why they were there. In an effort to bring all the Converse materials together, the drawings and papers were transferred from the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden to the Cheadle Center in 2008 to be kept on permanent loan.

Biography

Olivia Poole Long Converse was born November 23, 1898. She was the daughter of Louis Long. According to her friend Isabel Kelly, she was raised in California and attended UC Berkeley. She married George P. Converse, grandson of Edmund Cogswell Converse, former president of U.S. Steel, in 1922 and they were subsequently divorced in 1928. She lived part time in Santa Barbara and also spent much of her time in Valle de Bravo, a town located on a large lake, about two hours from Mexico City. While in Mexico, she worked on a book on garden plants of Mexico writing the text and making original drawings of about 70 plants she hoped to describe. Her yearly stays in Mexico were interrupted by the bombing of Pearl Harbor in December 1941, and she was unable to go back until 1944 to resume work on her book. In 1946, she had a showing of her drawings at the Biblioteca Benjamin Franklin in Mexico City, sponsored by the Instituto de Biologia de la Universidad Nacional and the Sociedad Botanica de Mexico. A 16-page catalog was published containing the text that accompanied the pictures. Converse also illustrated the cover of an issue of the Sociedad's Boletin in 1948. While she worked on her book, she collected many plants from the wild and sent specimens to both Mexican and American botanists for identification. On the advice of Maunsell van Rensselaer, Director of the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden, she collected a voucher specimen for each plant so there would be no future questions regarding their identification. Many if not most of those specimens were deposited at the Jepson Herbarium, UC Berkeley. Some of her specimens are also in the herbaria at the U.S. National Herbarium, the New York Botanical Garden and the Missouri Botanical Garden. Two plants she collected were new to science and were named after her: Aristolochia conversiae H.W. Pfeifer and Erythrina oliviae Krukoff.
Converse tried for a number of years to get a publisher interested in her book, to no avail. At the time of her death in 1972, her text was still very much in draft form, although she had 68 final or partially completed drawings. Her friends and colleagues Isabel Kelly, Annetta Carter, and Cornelius Muller were tasked in her will to dispose of her manuscript and drawings. After considering publishing her work as single journal articles, the group decided to contact the Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation in Pittsburgh to offer the collection to them. However, UCSB, where the collection was housed, made the decision to keep the collection for its value as a botanical art collection. In her honor, a graduate fellowship has been set up at UCSB for botanical field research in Mexico.

Scope and Content

The bulk of this series focuses on Converse's unpublished manuscript and drawings of Mexican plants, a project she worked on during the last thirty years of her life. Included are descriptions of about 60 plants with accompanying pencil drawings. Through her book, she wanted to introduce American readers to showy and beautiful flowering trees and shrubs which have not been widely introduced here (letter to Macmillan Company, April 4, 1939). By 1961 she had broadened her scope to address a growing interest in pre-Columbian life and to show the importance of Mexican plants in Aztec culture. She added to her early descriptions evergreens of historical or economic importance, vines, fruits, and edible plants such as coffee and vanilla. For each plant she gave its Nahuatl (Aztec) name, botanical name and any regional common name (in Spanish), as well as its native habitat, history of introduction if it was not native, medicinal or other uses, and other interesting information she found. She was interested in pre-Columbian uses of these plants and took copious notes from many historical works about Mexico. Her pencil drawings, showing flowers, fruits, and leaves, are stylized but accurate botanically. Accompanying these materials are research notes, field notes, and correspondence. Converse wrote to botanists in both the United States and Mexico for plant identification, verification of facts, and for assistance with editing. Notable correspondents include Annetta Carter and Herbert Mason from University of California, Berkeley; Maximo Martinez from the Sociedad Botánica de Mexico, Sylvio Conzatti, Clif Smith, and E.O. Orpet. Letters are in both Spanish and English. She also received assistance from botanists Paul Standley, Richard Howard, C.H. Muller, and Harold Moore, Nahuatl expert Francisco Horcasitas, and anthropologists Bodil Christensen and Isabel Kelly.

Arrangement

This series is arranged into four subseries: 1. Correspondence; 2. Publications; 3. Photographs; and 4. Drawings.

Ecologist, naturalist, and teacher previous hit Raymond Bridgman Cowles was born in 1896 in Natal, South Africa to missionary parents. He left Africa for the United States where he attended school, worked, served in the military during WWI, and attended Pomona College, earning a bachelor's degree in 1920. Following field work in Africa from 1925-27, he received his PhD in zoology from Cornell in 1928 and began working at UCLA in 1929, where he taught zoology until 1963.
Cowles wrote extensively about animals and specifically about reptilian thermoregulation, his pioneering research, from the 1920s through the mid 1970s. Other areas of research were fire ecology, desert ecology, continental drift and climate change, and overpopulation. Population issues, such as poverty, limited natural resources, famine, and birth control overlaid many of his arguments and were a concern stemming from his South African upbringing. Cowles published over 100 articles and wrote two books: Zulu Journal published in 1959 and Desert Journal published in 1977. Cowles was recognized for his teaching and research with many awards and honors, including an honorary doctorate of science from Pomona College; the Cowles Animal Medical Ward at the Living Desert Reserve; and the UC Cowles Temescal Canyon Reserve in the Santa Monica Mountains, dedicated in 1978. Cowles died in 1975 at the age of 79.

Scope and Content

This collection of papers deals predominantly with the published and unpublished writings of Raymond Cowles. Correspondence gives an insight into Cowles' struggles to publish his works on overpopulation in a timely fashion, as well as his views on various issues appearing in his writings. Noted correspondents include colleagues Kenneth Norris, Garrett Hardin, and Robert Stebbins, as well as Zulu chief Gatsha Buthelizi. Published Writings and Unpublished Writings contain the bulk of the series. Among the highlights are the two versions of his unpublished book On the Bondage of Human Numbers, a pessimistic look at the future of unrenewable, limited resources and the effects of overpopulation, which was to be published by University of Oklahoma press in 1968, as well as a different version co-written with Lucy Birzis. Also included are early drafts for his last book Desert Journal, published posthumously in 1977 with Elna Bakker, and a futuristic and optimistic novel that takes place 300 years after what Cowles predicted would be an economic-radiation crash. Photographs include many images of desert reptiles and birds both in Africa and California, and photos of Zululand. Many of the photos have captions. Artifacts contains the most unusual items--detritus from the first atomic bombs detonated in New Mexico in 1944, collected by Cowles during a survey he conducted on the effects of radiation on desert animals.

Arrangement

These materials have been divied into seven subseries: 1. Biographical Materials, 2. Correspondence, 3. Professional Activities, 4. Published Writings, 5. Unpublished Writings, 6. Photographs, and 7. Artifacts.

Section of electric cable employed in firing the world's first atomic explosion 1944

Physical Description: emph: Amphenol RG-54A / U - 1944

Scope and Contents note

Cable found by Cowles during experiments he conducted in New Mexico searching for radiation damage to native fauna and flora. Cowles wrote a report of his findings and a summary in a note, dated 1958, to his grandchildren, explaining the significance of the cable. His conclusion: Two years after the detonation there were no animals showing illness--at least we could find none, but I am still convinced that natural predators collected all those sickened by radiation to a degree that was, and is, far more effective than human agents.

Biography

Demorest Davenport was Professor of Zoology at UCSB from 1946-1974. Although he began his career in entomology, studying butterfly systematics, he turned his interests to marine invertebrate zoology, specializing in behavior and bioluminescence. Davenport built up the invertebrate courses at UCSB and spearheaded efforts to create a renewable seawater system and pier for the campus marine studies program. During his career, he developed an amateur passion for archaeology, and he was interested in how animals were represented in antiquities. This fascination led to the creation of an interdisciplinary course called Animals in Primitive and Ancient Art which he taught in the College of Creative Studies and through Adult Education for a number of years.
Born in 1911 in New York, Davenport attended Harvard University and Colorado College, earning a Ph.D from Harvard in 1937. He passed away in 2004 in Santa Barbara.

Scope and Content

These materials document the years 1970-1993, the latter years that Davenport was Professor of Zoology at UCSB and his retirement period. The papers document the day-to-day administrative and faculty activities he engaged in with colleagues, graduate students, and administration. They also focus on Davenport's 30-year interest in the representation of animals in primitive and ancient art.
Correspondence, consists of five years of outgoing letters covering a variety of academic activities from research interests and recommendations, to campus-wide issues. Davenport's observations on the campus unrest during spring 1970 are particularly enlightening. Also in this series is subject-related correspondence, both to and from Davenport, relating to sabbaticals during which he pursued his research on animals in art, visits to and work at marine labs in Great Britain and South America, various conferences he attended, and recreational activities, such as his favorite, fishing. Lectures and Papers, consists mostly of files related to a talk given at the Linnean Society conference on ethology in 1977 and the subsequent publication of the proceedings. Also included are copies of several other articles Davenport wrote or co-wrote and one lecture given in Portland, Oregon. Teaching Materials, contains tests, lecture notes, and reading materials for several classes Davenport taught at UCSB. Miscellaneous Materials, consists of various graphic materials used for reference or publication in some of Davenport's articles, as well as research notes. Artifacts, includes a microscope that was used on five polar expeditions commissioned by William Ziegler from 1901-1905, and a framed etching of a salmon.

Arrangement

Materials have been organized into five subseries: 1. Correspondence includes general correspondence on UCSB letterhead and subject files, both arranged chronologically; 2.

Biography

Katherine Esau (1898-1997), a world-renowned pioneer in plant anatomy was a prodigious researcher and author. Born of a Mennonite family in Ekaterinoslav, Russia (now Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine), she and her family fled Russia after the Revolution and moved to Berlin. She completed her undergraduate education in Germany in agriculture and worked there in several jobs. In 1922 the family immigrated to the United States and settled in Reedley, California.
Esau's early interests in plant anatomy centered on how viruses act on plants and their effect on plant tissue and development. During her employment at the Spreckels Sugar Company in Salinas, California in 1924, she worked on the development of resistance to curly top virus in sugar beets. She was invited to continue her research on sugar beets through the graduate program at UC Berkeley and the field station at Davis, earning her PhD in 1932. After graduate school, she was hired at the agricultural college at Davis (now University of California) and became one of the first women on the faculty, staying there until 1963. While teaching, she continued her research on viruses and specifically phloem, the food conducting tissue in plants. Esau was a popular teacher and was known for her ability to speak and write clearly, synthesizing the 19th century anatomy literature in plant structure and development and integrating it with current research. In the 1950s, she collaborated with botanist Vernon Cheadle, who chaired the Botany Department, on further phloem research. When he came to UCSB to become Chancellor, she moved to Santa Barbara, establishing an electron microscope lab at UCSB, and teaching plant anatomy as Emeritus Professor before retiring in 1967. She continued her research well into her 90s, publishing 162 articles and five books.
Over her 64-year career, Esau received many awards and degrees including the President's National Medal of Science in 1989. Her many classic textbooks are still used today in botany classes around the world. Esau was very generous both in her teaching and in giving back to academia. She established three endowments in plant anatomy and, with her family, contributed generously to several Mennonite educational institutions. A number of excellent biographies of Esau as well as her own autobiography and oral history provide insight into this fascinating woman.

Scope and Content

The Katherine Esau papers represent the entire body of plant anatomy research Esau conducted from 1924 when she began research on curly top virus in sugar beets for the Spreckels Sugar Company to 1991 when she published her last article. The course of her research has been described often by Esau herself and is summarized in her autobiography, included in the papers.
Series I Correspondence: This first series of general correspondence includes letters of thanks from many people who found her teaching and writings helpful; requests for biographical information; and letters regarding her various publications. A small number are research-focused. Publishers' correspondence is located in Series II.
Series II Research and Publications: The bulk of the papers are included in this series and consist of publication drafts and reviews; published articles by Esau and her colleagues, most notably Vernon Cheadle, James Cronshaw, Lynn Hoefert, Robert Gill, and Jennifer Thorsch; her extensive reprint collection; and 15 binders with notes taken on hundreds of publications in plant anatomy from the late 1800s to the late 1900s. Esau's photograph collections form a large subseries and consist of negatives, prints, lantern slides and 35 mm slides, used to illustrate her many publications. These electron microscope images were derived from anatomical preparations she made of plant materials, many of which are also preserved at the Cheadle Center as fluid plant collections.
Series III Academic Activities: This series consists of files about the various chairs and teaching positions that were either endowed by her or named after her.
Series IV Professional Activities: This series describes Esau's lectures and contributed papers at symposia, as well as the many academic and scientific honors and awards she received for her research.
Series V Miscellaneous Subjects: This series consists of several folders about colleagues and printed matter about language and communication, a special interest of Esau who was known for her clear writing and speaking.
Series VI Personal Papers: These files include autobiographical materials by Esau, such as her handwritten autobiography, personal items, family history and correspondence, and family photos; and articles written about her by colleagues.

Arrangement

This series has been organized into six subseries: I. Correspondence, II. Research and Publications, III. Academic Activities, IV. Professional Activities, V. Miscellaneous Subjects, and VI. Personal Papers.

Biography

Adriance Sherwood Foster was a pioneer in the field of plant anatomy. He was the first plant anatomist on the faculty at University of California, Berkeley, teaching there from 1934 until his retirement in 1968. Some of his areas of investigation were leaf differentiation, shoot growth and development, and leaf venation. He published over 35 articles and two introductory textbooks: Practical Plant Anatomy and Comparative Morphology of Vascular Plants, co-written by Ernest Gifford. Foster was born in Poughkeepsie, New York, in 1901, was educated at Cornell and Harvard, and received his D.Sc. in plant anatomy in 1926, studying under Irving Bailey.

Scope and Content

This material consists predominantly of black-and-white photographs and associated negatives of plant tissues and leaf clearings, some of which were used for publication. About five different genera were photographed with the majority being of Circaeaster, Kingonia, Ginkgo, and Zamia. Also included are five folders of research notes and drafts used either for publication or lectures.

Arrangement

Material has been organized into two subseries: 1. Research Notes and 2. Photographs. The photographs are arranged alphabetically by plant genus and, within each genus, chronologically by the date on the photo.

Robert W. Holmes 1975-1985

Physical Description: 1 linear feet
Abstract: Correspondence, notes, and field notebooks related to Holmes' collection of diatoms collected from Dall's porpoises from 1982-1985.

Immediate Source of Acquisition

This series, formerly the Robert W. Holmes papers (MS-10) was transferred from the Cheadle Center for Biodiversity and Ecological Restoration, University of California, Santa Barbara, to the UC Santa Barbara Library Department of Special Research Collections, August, 2016.
Gift of Robert Holmes.

Processing Information

Processed and encoded by Laurie Hannah at CCBER, 2008.
Arrangement and description of this collection was funded by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

Biography

Robert W. Holmes was born in Dover, NH, in 1925. He began his diatom career at the age of twelve by looking at diatoms and algae in a little pond located on the Haverford College campus, where his father was a professor.
Holmes graduated cum laude from Haverford College in 1949. As a junior he worked with Dr. Ruth Patrick at the Philadelphia Academy of Sciences preparing permanent slides of diatoms for microscopic observation. In the summers of 1948 and 1949 he received fellowships at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Insitution where he worked with B. Ketchum on diatom nutrition and A.C. Redfield on saltmarsh development.
Holmes attended Yale Graduate School for one year and transferred to the University of Oslo for two years. In Oslo he studied marine phytoplankton and biological oceanography under Dr. Trygve Braarud. After completing the studies for a Magistergrad including a paper on the annual cycle of phytoplankton on the Labrador Sea, he transferred to Scripps Institution of Oceanography in La Jolla, California. There he was a research biologist and continued his academic studies receiving a Master's Degree in Oceanography. Research in the tropical Pacific formed the basis of his doctoral dissertation, A Contribution to the Physical, Chemical, and Biological Oceanography of the Northeastern Tropical Pacific, and he received a PhD from the University of Oslo in 1966. During his latter years at Scripps Holmes was an active member of the Marine Food Chain Group.
In 1967 Holmes joined the Biological Science Faculty at UC Santa Barbara. In 1968 he became the first Director of the newly established Marine Science Institute at UCSB. In this position he immediately became involved as one of four UC administrators of the newly formed UC Sea Grant Program. During his tenure as director he organized the Santa Barbara Oil Symposium in response to the 1969 Santa Barbara oil spill. He also served as the catalyst for obtaining the Sierra Nevada Aquatic Research Laboratory (SNARL) for UC's Natural Land and Water Reserve System (now known as the Natural Reserve System).
In 1984 he received a visiting professorship from the Japanese Science Foundation to collaborate with Prof. T. Nemoto at the Ocean Reseach Institute (ORI) of the University of Tokyo on cetacean research. Prof. Nemoto helped arrange a tour of marine aquaculture facilities which was useful in Holmes' Sea Grant administrative duties. At this time a grant from the ORI enabled him to return to Japan for further work on cetacean diatoms. During his latter visit and subsequently, he worked extensively with Dr. S. Nagasawa of ORI. At UCSB Holmes also worked with Prof. J. Melack in a cooperative program on acid deposition in the high Sierra. Holmes investigated whether diatoms in sediment cores showed a response to acidification in the lake water.
For many years Holmes collected diatoms from a variety of freshwater and marine habitats in the western US. These collections led to collaboration with a number of other investigators: Pat Sims of the British Museum of Natural History on Aulacodiscus, Frank Round and Dick Crawford of the University of Bristol on the genus Coccneis, A.L. Brigger of Yucaipa, CA, on Entogonia, and Don Croll of Moss Landing Laboratory on the diatoms on diving sea-birds. Professor Holmes retired in 1988. (Adapted from a document by Lillian Busse.)

Scope and Content

Material consists of correspondence, notes, and field notebooks related to Holmes' collection of diatoms collected from Dall's porpoises from 1982-1985. The field notes describe diatom specimens that are stored separately at CCBER. A small folder contains material on diatom preparation used in Holmes' Botany 176 and 276 lab courses

Maynard F. Moseley 1941-1989

Physical Description: 3 linear feet
Abstract: Teaching materials, including hand-drawn illustrations, lectures, and exams for several botany courses taught by UCSB professor Maynard Moseley. Includes a small amount of correspondence.

Biography

Maynard Fowle Moseley was born in Boston in 1918 and attended University of Massachusetts and University of Illinois at Urbana, completing his Ph.D. in Botany in 1947. He taught for two years at Cornell before moving to Santa Barbara to join the faculty of UCSB in 1949. At UCSB, he was Professor of Botany where he taught plant anatomy and plant morphology until April 1, 1984. Moseley researched wood and floral anatomy as they related to the evolution of and relationship between flowering plants. He was an expert in the floral structure of water lilies and published extensively on them. He was also co-author with William Purves of Botany in the Laboratory, published in 1974. During his career he advised seven doctoral students and was known for his interest and enthusiasm in his students' work. The Botanical Society of America established the Maynard F. Moseley Award in 1995 to honor a career of dedicated teaching, scholarship, and service to the furtherance of the botanical sciences. Moseley passed away in 2003 at the age of 85.

Acquisition Information

This series, formerly the Maynard F. Moseley papers (MS-03) was transferred from the Cheadle Center for Biodiversity and Ecological Restoration, University of California, Santa Barbara, to the UC Santa Barbara Library Department of Special Research Collections, August, 2016

Scope and Content

The bulk of these files are teaching materials related to plant anatomy and morphology courses Moseley taught at UCSB. The series Research and Publications is an artificial group of items, ranging from a notebook used during Moseley's wartime service as a lab technician to a National Science Foundation grant report. Also included are collection notes for plant specimens Moseley collected in California which correspond to his chart on Garrya. The Plant Anatomy Drawings consist of about 200 pen and pencil drawings made mostly by Moseley when he was an undergraduate studying botany.

Arrangement

These materials have been subdivided into three subseries: 1. Correspondence; 2. Research and Publications; 3. Plant Anatomy Drawings; 4. Teaching Materials; 5. Biographical; 6. Addition

Separated Material

A large reprint collection has been transfered to the Herbarium reprint files. Copies of the doctoral dissertations of Moseley's students have been transfered to the library and are listed in the library online catalog.

Biography

Cornelius H. Muller or Neil, as he was known to his colleagues and family, had a long and distinguished career as a plant ecologist and plant taxonomist. After graduating from University of Illinois in 1938 with a PhD in Botany, Muller worked for the Illinois Natural History Survey for one year and then for the USDA in various capacities from 1938-1945. Summers were usually spent on plant collecting trips to Mexico, the Southwest, and the southern United States. His work focused on vegetation studies in Texas and Mexico and most prominently on oaks. Muller married Katherine Kinsel, also a botanist, who directed the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden from 1950-1973. She was a partner with her husband in much of his vegetation studies and oak collecting trips, sharing in the creation of the extensive field notes found in this collection. He and Katherine also collaborated on a publication about Jean Louis Berlandier's plant collecting in Mexico in the 1820s. Their son, Robert, is a plant ecologist and is also a correspondent in these papers.
From 1938 to 1942 Muller worked for the USDA Division of Plant Exploration and Introduction, naming and classifying plant specimens. As a result of this work, he published A Revision of the Genus Lycopersicon and The Central American Species of Quercus. During World War II, he worked for the Bureau of Plant Industry on the Special Guayule Research Project on a series of experiments on root development. His results were published in the USDA Technical Bulletin 923 entitled Root Development and Ecological Relations of Guayule. In 1945 he began teaching at UCSB (then known as Santa Barbara College). He helped develop the botany major in 1947 and taught various courses in botany and ecology until 1976 when he retired from UCSB. He continued in a teaching capacity as Adjunct Professor of Botany at University of Texas from 1974 to 1992.
At UCSB, Muller founded the Herbarium in the early 1950s and was Curator from 1956 to 1964. In addition to his teaching duties, during his years at UCSB Muller conducted numerous research studies, funded partly by four National Science Foundation grants, on allelopathic mechanisms in California plant communities and systematics and evolution of the species Quercus. He published over 110 articles and books, peer reviewed numerous articles and proposals, and supervised and worked with over 15 graduate students. He published two monographs: The Central American Species of Quercus and The Oaks of Texas, as well as provided treatments for the genus in Arizona Flora, Flora of Panama, Manual of the Vascular Plants of Texas, and Flora North America.
Throughout his career, Muller took collecting trips to Costa Rica, Cedros Island off of Baja California, Texas, Southern California, and Mexico, and went twice to Europe in the 1950s to study oak specimens at various herbaria. In the course of his years at UCSB, Muller deposited over 15,000 oak specimens in the UCSB herbarium, including 90 type specimens. He was named Faculty Research Lecturer in 1957, the third faculty member to receive the title, honoring distinguished research achievement both locally and abroad. In 1975 Muller was honored for his work in ecology by being named Eminent Ecologist for 1975, a prestigious award given by the Ecological Society of America. He was also honored for his work in oak systematics by having two plants named after him: Quercus cornelius-mulleri and Quercus mulleri.
Muller passed away in Santa Barbara on January 26, 1997 at the age of 88.

Scope and Content

These materials document the botanical research and teaching career of Cornelius Muller. The bulk of the material relates to Muller's research on oaks, chemical ecology, or allelopathy, and plant classification and vegetation studies of plants from the southwestern United States and Latin America, resulting in over 110 publications over the course of his long career. The collection includes correspondence, field notes, research notes, experimental data, unpublished drafts and published articles, photographs, drawings, maps, and artifacts, such as lab and field equipment.
Field notes describe plants and vegetation that Muller and his wife Katherine collected and observed on collecting trips to Mexico, Texas, the southwestern and southeastern United States, Cuba, and in California. Guayule contains data on experiments conducted at the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden in the 1940s, additional notes, and the original drawings for the publication Root Development and Ecological Relations of Guayule. Quercus includes correspondence, notes, data on individual species, and notes on Muller's trips to European herbaria. Experimental Plant Ecology consists of research data on allelopathy, inhibition, and plant toxins of California native plants compiled by Muller, his colleague Walter Muller, and various graduate students from 1961-1966, that resulted in at least six publications. Included are gas chromatography data, bioassays, and field notes for various experiments conducted in the Santa Ynez Valley region and elsewhere in Santa Barbara. Publications contains drafts, notes, and correspondence for some of Muller's publications, as well as unpublished writings. (A complete set of Muller's publications are catalogued in the library.) Photographs complement the collecting trips and various publications.

Arrangement

Materials have been divided into six subseries: 1. Correspondence, 2. Research and Publications; 3. Faculty and Professional Papers; 4. Personal Papers; 5. Maps; 6. Artifacts.

Separated Material

Muller's books, reprint collection, and some bound maps have been added to the library collection. They are accessible through the library catalog. Several photograph prints and slides have been removed from correspondence folders and are housed together with Muller's other photographs in a separate photograph collection (Subseries 2.)

Related Material

A small subset of photocopies of these papers constitute a series of bound volumes in the Museum of Systematics institutional files (RG-01) that were compiled by former Herbarium curator Wayne Ferren. They deal predominantly with Muller's work on oaks and include correspondence, field notes, and grant proposals. Information on Muller's role as founder and Curator of the UCSB Herbarium can be found in the series Herbarium Correspondence. Correspondence and other files relating to Muller's work on the Special Guayule Research Project are also located in the archives of the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden.

Robert M. Norris 1966-1993

Physical Description: 5 linear feet

Acquisition Information

This series, formerly the Robert M. Norris papers (MS-13) was transferred from the Cheadle Center for Biodiversity and Ecological Restoration, University of California, Santa Barbara, to the UC Santa Barbara Library Department of Special Research Collections, August, 2016
Collection transferred to CCBER from the UCSB NRS Office, which received it from Norris.

Biography

Robert M. Norris was Professor of Geology at UCSB from 1952 to the early 1980s and the first chair of the Department of Geology from 1960-64. He taught physical geology, geomorphology, geology of California, and a field mapping class.
He was very active in the development of the UC Natural Reserve System and served as director of the Santa Cruz Island Field Station (now a UCSB reserve) from 1970-75. He chaired the UCSB NLWRS Faculty Advisory Committee (also called Chancellor's Administrative Committee on the NRS) from 1978-1992 and helped create the UCSB NRS academic plan in 1979. He was also a member of the UC NRS University-wide Advisory Committee from 1972-1991 and the Management Sub-Committee for Granite Mountain Reserve. Some of his work on the California Desert Conservation Area Advisory Committee is included in this collection.

Processing Information

Finding aid created with support from the National Science Foundation and University of California Office of the President. Collection processed by Laurie Hannah and Olivia Heir.

Scope and Content

The Norris papers provide a solid picture of the early administration of the University of California Natural Land and Water Reserve System (NLWRS) and its growth and development into the UC Natural Reserve System (NRS). Many of the files are concerned with the role of the UC campuses within the system and the creation of a system wide academic plan as well as campus academic plans. Notable documents include the 1978 Academic Plan, a report by Kenneth Norris called The Importance of the Natural Reserve System to the University of California, and files on the 1989 MOU signed by the Interagency Natural Areas Coordinating Committee on ways to identify and manage California's natural areas. Other notable documents include the 1991 Final Report of the Natural Reserve Steering Committee on Long-Range Planning that reflects the current administrative structure, staffing, and roles of the system wide and campus offices.
As Norris was the chair of UCSB's campus advisory committee for so many years, there are quite a few files on the establishment of UCSB's reserves: Sedgwick Ranch, Santa Cruz Island, Valentine Ranch, Coal Oil Point, and Carpinteria Salt Marsh. There are also a number of files about non-UCSB reserves and potential reserve acquisitions. Also included are administrative files on budget, annual reports, correspondence, management plans, and committee minutes.

Separated Material

A number of published materials were removed from this collection and transferred to the CCBER Library. They include: 91 brochures from various reserves; 15 publications including annual reports, management plans, and bibliographies; 35 issues of Transect; and Annual Reports from UCSB Natural Reserve System from 1980-1993.
