Ellwood J. Carr Botanical Books
ELLWOOD J. CARR BOTANICAL BOOK COLLECTION
The Ellwood J. Carr Botanical Book Collections is only a small focused selection from the larger book collection that was gathered by the self-taught botanist. In 2017 the Ellwood J. Carr book collections were removed from Girl’s Industrial building (Plant Center) to the Library in Boy’s House. Currently, the full collection has not been completely inventoried. The Botanical Book Collection contains titles that focus on herbal cookery and medicine. The selected gallery below samples the type of materials found in this unique collection,
The botanical collection will be inventoried against the larger Carr book collection and some titles not fitting the collection boundaries will be integrated into the general Ellwood J. Carr Book Collection. The Carr Book Collection is a WORK IN PROCESS.
