“Bill Weber was instrumental for the development of the Herbarium at CU-Boulder, taking it from a very modest collection to a pre-eminent one in the West, and the best collection for the Rocky Mountain region. He produced floras of the region that are well-respected and researched, drawing upon his many experiences in the field and in the collection. His varied interests in lichens, mosses, and vascular plants made the collection much more diverse than a singular focus, and his many trips and wide range of correspondents provided additional material for the Herbarium” said Patrick Kociolek, Director of the CU Museum of Natural History.
“Bill remained remarkably sharp and witty through his final days, even finishing the last mile of the Boulder Boulder 10k foot race at age 99. Typical Bill!” said Erin Tripp, current Curator of Botany at the CU Museum of Natural History. “Given the extent and breadth of his lifetime contributions and service to the CU Herbarium and beyond, it feels nothing short than the end of an era.”
Monday – Friday: 9 am – 5 pm Saturday: 9 am – 4 pm Sunday: 10 am – 4 pm The museum is closed on all University holidays.
