Excerpt from Proceedings of the Davenport Academy of Natural Sciences, 1889-1897, Vol. 6
The excellent engraved portrait of Dr. C. C. Parry, which forms the frontispiece to the volume, was donated by Mrs. Parry, who also prepared the list of his published writings. These, with the accompanying Biograph ical Sketch by Dr. C. H. Preston, will give added interest to the volume for botanists the world over, as well as for the many personal friends and acquaintances of Dr. Parry in this city and elsewhere.
The synopsis OF proceedings has been brought down to the beginning of the present year, and a comprehensive index is appended which will prove helpful to those consulting the volume.
Among the papers in prospect for Volume VII. Are one on the Local Geology of Davenport, by Professor W. H. Barris, now ready, which it was intended to have included in Volume VI., and one on the Flora of Scott and Muscatine Counties, Iowa, in course of preparation by Messrs. F. Reppert, A. A. Miller, and W. D. Barnes. Also, biographical sketches of Charles E. Putnam and W. H. Pratt, with portraits, which were to have appeared in this, will be given in the seventh volume.
