Calvin Josiah Cowles
(6 January 1821 1 April 1907)

Information compiled by Carol Ann McCormick,
Curator of the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill Herbarium.


The University of North Carolina Chapel Hill Herbarium has catalogued a single fungal specimen Ustilago zeae (Beckm.) Ung. collected by Calvin Josiah Cowles. However, as he is a very interesting gentleman, he gets a collector page!

Cowles seems to have made a single collection, but as it was included in the Mycological Exchange of 1921, several herbaria (CUP, NY, BPI, and ARIZ) have portions of that single specimen.
