About[edit]

Places I Have Been: United StatesEnglandScotlandSouth KoreaSpainNetherlandsJapanVietnamCambodiaThailandMalaysiaSingaporePhilippinesIndonesiaCanadaMexico


I'm somewhere between a historian of science and a librarian. Initially most of my edits were of pages related to Singapore, South Korea, and St. Louis. Now I mostly watch pages related to botany and cultural institutions, but I would also like to help form links between Wikipedia and various Digital Humanities projects. A lot more could be done to strengthen Wikipedia pages with direct links to primary sources.

Works in Progress[edit]

St. Louis[edit]

Plants[edit]

Bibliography[edit]

  • George Engelmann bibliography - can be stronger on secondary literature and integration with the correspondence on BHL.
  • Charles Darwin bibliography - can be a lot stronger. The family of Darwin articles should be better integrated with the content hosted on Darwin Online, the Darwin Correspondence Project, the Darwin Manuscript Project, and the Darwin Library.
  • Alfred Russel Wallace bibliography - The same is true of Wallace that is true of Darwin.
