Dr. John D. Freeman, former Professor of Botany and Curator of the Auburn
University Herbarium, died peacefully at his home in Auburn, Alabama on
Easter Sunday.  He was 55 years old.  He had been in declining
health especially in the past six months.  Dr. Freeman, a noted Trillium
expert, will be remembered by numerous students for his dedication to
teaching and for his interest in preservation of threatened and endangered
plants of Alabama and the Southeast.  In lieu of flowers, the family has
asked that donations be made to the American Cancer Society, Hospice of
Lee County, or the Alabama WIldflower Society.
