Martin W. Gorman’s 1902 Collection Field Book from Lake Iliamna, Alaska

About the Project

Business trips took Martin Woodlock Gorman (1853-1926) to the Yukon and southern Alaska at the turn of the century. There a passion for collecting plants took hold, and Gorman collected plants in the Pacific Northwest for the next thirty years. Gorman is credited with collecting several new plant species, some named after him. This project looks to transcribe Gorman’s field notebook from his 1902 expedition to the Iliamna Lake region of Alaska. Deposited at the Smithsonian and now part of the Field Book Project, it documents the specimens he collected. Join with others who are transcribing this important record of his 1902 collecting activities.
