The historic roots of the California Botanical Society are traced from 1853, when the California Academy of Natural Sciences was founded, to the organizational meeting in 1913 called by W. L. Jepson. Twenty-five organizations and events more or less influenced the Society's origins. Natural history events, especially botanical, in the East, the role of the California Botanical Club, the Sierra Club, and rivalries are noted particularly.
