Subject: [Taxacom] Lupinus specimens need a home
As many of you may have heard, the University of Missouri Dunn-Palmer Herbarium's collections have been moved to the Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis (MO). (link to an earlier press release below)
Prior to my arrival in 1988, David Baxter Dunn was Curator for about three decades. There are many, many duplicate collections of Dunn (and his students) still here at UMO, and I am looking for a home for these. They are mainly (but not all) Lupinus taxa, from Mexico, Central America, and western and southwestern North America.
If anyone or any herbarium is interested in acquiring these (as gifts), please let me know off-list, and we’ll see what we can work out.
