less than 101 Scandinavians who. have
contributed to the systematic botany
of North America, including Green
land, Mexico, the West Indies and

Rydberg's paper is a worthy memorial
in honor of the, "illustrious Swede,
whose life wor-K- gave the' first great
and world-wide impetus to the studv

is particularly befitting that such a me
morial should be published by -an in

ist's countrymen in America. .

ment covering 48 pages a geological
