For the first time, the Garden will highlight the life and career of “botanical maverick” Marcus E. Jones in its newest exhibition in March 2017. Geologist, mining engineer, educator, and prolific writer, Marcus E. Jones (1852-1934) was one of the most prominent botanists of the American West. Active during the late 19th century and into the early parts of the 20th century, Jones traveled extensively throughout the western United States and Mexico, collecting thousands of plants while photographing and recording detailed notes of the regions he traveled in. The archives and plant specimens of Marcus E. Jones are housed at RSABG and are a treasure trove of historical and botanical information.
