David Hosack

Botanist Across America

On this day in 1807, the botanist Frederick Pursch visited David Hosack.

Hosack was happy to have Pursch collect specimens from all around the United States for him. He wrote,

"I shall have a very industrious and skillful botanist [begin] to collect from different parts of the Union."
