Warren C. Wilson Western Alpines Project Lantern Slides, 1936-1938

Scope and Content Note

The Warren C. Wilson Western Alpines Project Lantern Slides consist of 9 lantern slides of photographs made by Wilson during a western alpine flora collecting trip in 1936. The slides depict the Mount Baker and Mount Shuksan areas in the North Cascades of Washington, Mount Rainier, Jasper National Park in Alberta, and the Portland (Oregon) Airport on Swan Island. An offprint of the article "Collecting Western Alpines by Air", written by Wilson and published in The National Horticultural Magazine, provides details of the collecting trip and is also part of the collection. One of the photographs of Mount Rainer is published in the article. The other slides are annotated with references to page numbers in the article.
