California Academy of Sciences[edit]

One of his forward-thinking ideas was the inclusion of women in scientific and natural history work, and two women who were later hired as curators at the California Academy of Sciences were Katherine Brandegee and Alice Eastwood.

West American Oaks[edit]

Dr. Albert Kellogg's specialty was the study of trees, and he published a book called "West American Oaks" with four hundred botanical drawings.
