Charles Deam Article

On a recent wintry day at the town library, I was walking past the magazine racks and there was our legendary botanist Charles Deam on the cover of "Traces of Indiana and Midwestern History!"

Left to right: Frank Wallace, Indiana Dept. of Conservation Entomologist, Charles Deam, Botanist, and Frank McFarland of the University of Kentucky. Photographed at a conference at Clifty Falls State Park, May 14, 1949. From Indiana University Archives.

The article inside tells his story very nicely and was written by Jennifer Harrison. The issue date is Fall, 2010, and the article includes several pictures of Mr. Deam that I had not seen before. The extraordinary legacy of this man's passion for botany lives on!
