About the Project
Come help us create digital records for the United States National Herbarium (US)! The collections of Martin Woodlock Gorman are ready for transcription.
Martin W. Gorman (1853-1926) was a leading authority on the flora of the Pacific Northwest and is credited with discovering at least ten plant species new to science. Gorman travelled to Alaska several times, with various expeditions, beginning in 1893. His plant collections from 1895, 1899 and 1902 were deposited in the United States National Herbarium. His 1902 field book for collections made in the Iliamna Bay Region was also deposited at the Smithsonian and can be seen here as part of The Field Book Project. Please help us transcribe this valuable plant collection!
