|Description: ||Finding aid for a collection. Collection description: The Augustin Gattinger Papers consist of one Hollinger box (0.417 linear feet).
The Augustin Gattinger Papers (1825-1903) are composed primarily of correspondence with the addition of one folder containing newspaper clippings and articles along with handwritten reminiscences of Dr. Gattinger by friends and associates.
The bulk of the letters in the collection consist of Dr. Gattinger's correspondence with prominent botanists of the day including Asa Gray of Harvard, Leo Lesquereux and A.W. Chapman, the renowned collector of Southern plants. Much of the material involves the publication and distribution of Dr. Gattinger's book, Flora of Tennessee and Philosophy of Botany.|
