From Special Collections Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Campus Tour of Woody Species is available online from the Department of Biology.[1] "Among the scenic locations on campus can be found more than 300 species and varieties of woody plants, a living archive that also supports research by faculty and students at the College. By vote of the Board of Visitors, this collection is known as "The Baldwin Memorial Collection of Woody Species" after John T. (J.T.) Baldwin, Jr., professor of biology from 1946 to 1974."[2]

"The campus tour of woody species is self-guided and follows in the footsteps of the walking tour given for many years by Professor Baldwin."[3]

The tour includes stops throughout the College of William and Mary campus including the Sunken Garden, Crim Dell, Wildflower Refuge, and other locations. It does not include the College Woods.

A note about the information in this wiki
Unfortunately, many of the early original records of the College of William and Mary were destroyed by fire, military occupation, and the normal effects of time. The information available here is the best available from known documents and sources at the time it was written. Information in this wiki is not complete as new information continues to be uncovered in the SCRC's collections and elsewhere. Researchers are strongly encouraged to use the SCRC's access tools for their research as the information contained in this wiki is by no means comprehensive.
