Biographical/Historical note:
Guy N. Collins (1872-1938) was a botanist, geneticist, and plant explorer. While on hiatus from his undergraduate studies at Syracuse, Collins developed an interest in photography during an expedition in Liberia with Orator Fuller Cook. After the Spanish-American War, he worked for the office of Botanical Investigations and Experiments in the US Department of Agriculture. Collins joined Cook's exploration of Puerto Rican plant life, the results of which were published by the Smithsonian Institution in "Economic Plants of Porto Rico." Collins later became Principal Botanist in the USDA's Division of Cereal Crops and Diseases of the Bureau of Plant Industry and was a founder of the Washington Biologists' Field Club.
