ABOUT CASTANEA Journal Southern Appalachian Botanical Club

Issues of CASTANEA The Journal of the Southern Appalachian Botanical Club, came to Pine Mountain Settlement School Collections through the donated collections of E. J. Carr Collection. Ellwood J. Carr, a self-taught botanist who shared an enthusiasm for the work at Pine Mountain Settlement, was eager to support environmental education at the School. The journal is rich in articles related to the flora of the Central and Southern Appalachians, particularly ferns. 

Castanea began publication in 1936, and publishes work relating to all aspects of botany in the eastern United States. The journal includes scientific papers dealing with basic research in any field of plant biology.

Bronwynn, now a retired nurse, is the daughter of Dr. Tracy Jones and Florence Houghton Jones. Dr. Tracy Jones headed the Pine Mountain Settlement School Hospital [Creech Clinic] which was in operation at the School in the early years of the 1950s.
