Original Nehrling Papers - Manuscripts and Correspondence

 other level — Box: 1
Identifier: Box 1

Scope and Contents

Box 1 contains 46 folders, most of which are Nehrling's original manuscripts of handwritten, typescript and photocopied papers.  The bulk of this material has to do with palm trees and fig or rubber trees.  The time period during which these papers were written or transcribed is unknown.  Material from these notes and manuscripts have made their way into several publications.  Among these are [i]The Plant World in Florida [/i](1933), [i]Nehrling's Plants, People and Places in Early Florida [/i](2001), and [i]Nehrling's Early Florida Gardens [/i](2001)[i].[/i]   Material from the manuscripts may also be found in the articles published in [i]The American Eagle[/i] (1922-1929), and elsewhere. The manuscript notes contain personal names and details, such as whom Nehrling collected plant specimens from, as well as specifics about the plants and their care which may not be included in published material.  Beyond the notes and manuscripts, there are folders of original correspondence, most of which is between Henry Nehrling and Theodore L. Mead (1852-1936), another early Florida horticulturist.  Some miscellaneous items in Box 1 also include ledgers, lists, notes on birds, dried leaves and three locks of hair (origin unknown).
