Papers, notes and drawings from Seville Flowers' collection

A sketch drawing of flowersSpring is upon us! Find some flowers blooming in CU’s Archives, in the Seville Flowers Collection. Seville Flowers was a professor of botany at the University of Utah from 1936-1968 and his collection contains class lectures and notes, manuscripts, and drawings of specimens from that time. Yes, that is his real last name. Pun not intended, but much appreciated. He was the foremost authority on cryptogamic botany in the intermountain region. More about his life and work can be learned from the Seville Flowers' obituary available from the BYU archives.

Come see and learn more on these plants, in the Seville Flowers Papers at the CU Boulder Archives!
