Summary:
These records are the official files of Charles Louis Pollard (1872-1945) as Assistant Curator of the Division of Botany, United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), 1894-1895, and the Division of Plants, United States National Museum (USNM), 1895-1903. Pollard also edited Plant World from 1899 to 1907.
These records document the activities of both divisions, as well as Pollard's scientific and administrative activities from 1894 to 1903. The records of both divisions have been maintained together and contain incoming and outgoing correspondence with botanists, entomologists, horticulturists, USDA and USNM administrative staff; foresters and colleagues; seed laboratories; and natural history and scientific societies. The correspondence chiefly concerns the examination, identification, collection, and exchange of botanical specimens, especially violets, mosses, grasses, ferns, fern-like plants, food plants, herbs, shrubs, and trees.
The correspondence also includes accession lists, annual reports, requests and approvals for field work, nomenclatorial work, and routine correspondence in reference to the publication of Plant World and other publications concerning botanical specimens. Also included are some of Pollard's manuscripts: "New American Specied of Chamaecrista"; "A new Violet from New Jersey"; "The Genus Oxytria of Rafinesque"; and "The Two Violets."

Notes:
The Department of Biology was formed during the reorganization of the United States National Museum in 1897. At that time, the various departments in the biological sciences became divisions and the department was set up as the organizational unit controlling those divisions. The first Head Curator was Frederick William True who served from 1897 to 1911. In 1911, Leonhard Stejneger became Head Curator and held that position until his death in 1943. Waldo LaSalle Schmitt was the last Head Curator of the Department and served until its separation in 1947 into the Departments of Zoology and Botany. Schmitt continued as Head Curator of Zoology and Ellsworth Paine Killip was appointed Head Curator of Botany.
Summary:
The correspondence in this record unit contains only a portion of the correspondence of the two Departments. Other material relating to the Department of Biology can be found in the Frederick William True Papers, record unit 7181, and the Leonhard Stejneger Papers, record unit 7074.
