Abstract

The British-born Joseph Burtt Davy spent 1892-1902 at the University of California, Berkeley, where he was affiliated with the Department of Botany and the State Agricultural Experiment Station. During this time he published about 80 articles on diverse aspects of botany, most of them in the journal Erythea for which he apparently had substantial editorial responsibility. Burtt Davy's activities in California are partially reconstructed through his correspondence with botanists at Berkeley and at Kew. The circumstances surrounding his departure from California are unclear, but in 1902 he moved to Washington, D. C., for a brief period and then went to Pretoria, South Africa, where he established a herbarium in a unit that eventually became the Botanical Research Unit.
