Institutional Inventories

The archival collections include materials that document the administration and facilities of the various botanical herbaria and institutions. Researchers can consult correspondence, plans and blueprints, accession records, directors' reports, financial records, and photographs. 

Additional materials on the institutional histories can be found in personal papers of herbaria directors and at the Harvard University Archives.
