NURSE AND SEED
Jayne T. MacLean*
A charming book of collected essays by Katherine S. White,
entitled Onward and Upuard in the Garden (Ed. E.B. White,
N.Y., Farrar, Straus, Giroux, 1979), is a review of nursery and
seed catalogs, an appreciation of their authors, and a sharing
of the winter vision of sun-warmed earth and flourishing acres
of flowers, vegetables, and trees that these catalogs evoke.
The extensive popularity it enjoys is a testament to the degree
that it touches a common chord in the fraternity of devoted
gardeners. By mid-summer, when one's garden is a reality, the
catalogs so eagerly ordered and read from last winter are
usually tossed out. In libraries these trade lists are also
often discarded when the next year's edition arrives. Very few
libraries in this country maintain their catalogs for long
periods or collect them from a large number of firms. However,
there are good arguments for doing so.
For example, when a plant systematist is conducting a
literature search to determine the first officially published
description of a species or variety, he may need to consult
old nursery and seed trade catalogs -- an underexploited
historical treasure. Often these catalogs contain the first
announcements of plant varieties imported or developed by the
commercial plantsman. They range from one-page broadsides to
lavishly illustrated tomes complete with growing instructions
or discourses on the joys of horticulture.

Professional nurserymen and seedsmen were doing business in
America by the time of the Revolution, although botantists and
hobbyists on both sides of the Atlantic had been trafficking in
and exchanging seeds and plants from the earliest colonial
times. One of the first indigenous catalogs that we know of
(dated 1771) was issued by William Prince, of Flushing, New
York; a broadside listing fruit trees for sale. The Prince
family tradition in the nursery trade continued through three
generations to 1866. Other nurserymen who were established
around the turn of the 19th Century included David Landreth
Seed Company of Philadelphia (first catalog in 1811); Bernard
McMahon, also of Philadelphia, most famous for his multi-
edition book, American Gardener's Calendar, first published in
1806 and continued for 60 years; Ephraim Goodale of Bucksport,

Maine; John Bartram & Son of Philadelphia; and Grant Thorburn &
Son, NewYork. Examples of the catalogs and advertisements of
these early plantsmen fortunately have been preserved in some
public and private collections.
Others who find nursery and seed catalogs a rich vein of
historical information are social historians tracing the daily
lives of people in various periods and sections of the country
as they shaped, and were shaped by, their surroundings.
Glimpses of industrial and economic history are also found, as
frequently pictures of gardening and farming implements appear
In the same catalogs as plants and seeds. Art historians are
able to gain insights into popular tastes during a given
period. Specialists in landscape or garden restoration find
many important clues to plants used at a particular time and to
styles of layout and design of gardens.
Nursery and seed trade catalogs are becoming more and more
recognized as a valuable resource; unfortunately collections
are scarce. One reason has been the lack of recognition of
their value as research material. Another aspect, very real in
most libraries, historical societies, and institutions where
collections exist, is a shortage of storage space. With
collections that contain historical catalogs, another problem
prevails the actual disintegration of the paper on which they
were printed, a familiar problem with many older books,
pamphlets and periodicals. Preservation measures, such as
encasing materials in acid-free folders or boxes, are expgn-
sive time-consuming, and are usually undertaken for only the
most valuable items. Incidentally, antiquarian book dealers
report that old and rare catalogs now enjoy a considerable

An organization which has become increasingly concerned about
the scarcity of nursery and seed trade catalogs is the Council
on Botanical and Horticultural Libraries, of which the National
Agricultural Library (NAL) is a member. The Council has set in
motion a nationwide survey intended to discover, first, what
institutions have collections of catalogs, and later, what the
actual holdings consist of, i.e., the companies represented and
for what years. The polling of likely institutions is being
conducted by Council members on a regional basis, using a
standard questionnaire. The information requested includes:
-Do you have nursery or seed catalogs?
-In approximately what quantities?
-From what time periods (before 1830, 1830-1870,
1870-1920, or contemporary)
-Is collection listed or cataloged?
-What geographic areas predominate?
An interim report of the survey yields eye-opening results. In
the 20 states and provinces of the U.S. and eastern Canada
surveyed so far only about 288 libraries and institutions
reported holdings of nursery or seed catalogs (mostly current
rather than historical). This is well below the figures
estimated prior to the survey. Final tabulations will be
published by the Council, when the survey is completed.
Preliminary to the Council's survey, NAL provided a record of
its file of older catalogs to various members as a resource for
the regional polling. Since the NAL collection is one of the
most extensive in the U.S., these records present an accurate
picture of firms in the nursery and seed trade business during
the period from the turn of the 19th century to the
The Library's newest additions are recorded by an automated
check-in system designed to facilitate record-keeping and
assist the reference staff in retrieving information from the
catalogs. Records for 1978, consisting of about 500 catalogs,
have been computer-loaded and can be searched online. Updates
for the 1979 and 1980 catalogs are soon to entered.
Such efforts give hope that a neglected research resource will
begin to receive the attention and care that it deserves. For

GERMPLASM REPOSITOR The first U.S. Department of Agriculture facility in a
SYSTEM nationally coordinated system that will provide a major source
of germplasm needed to develop improved varieties of fruit and
nut plants that must be propagated vegetatively was dedicated
at Corvallis. Oregon on April 15.
The building is a white, ultramodern, 40,000 square foot
facility sitting on 3.79 acres. It has six greenhouses, in
which most plant materials will be grown with the exception of
pears and filberts, which will be grown outside.
Germplasm is the hereditary materials scientists use to breed
superior plants. These efforts result in new varieties that
resist insects and diseases, are more tolerant of adverse
environmental stresses and have other traits conducive to
sustained high yields.
The germplasm, often whole plants, will be made available to
agricultural scientists doing research for the USDA, state
agricultural experiment stations and industry throughout the
country. To the extent possible, germplasm materials also will
be made available to researchers and plant breeders in other
Preservation of germplasm is important for a strong and
productive agriculture. Wild plants are being lost as their
habitats are destroyed by industrialization and urbanization.
Cultivated native varieties around the world are being
discarded as farmers plant the new higher yielding varieties.
Unless we take steps to prevent it, much valuable plant
germplasm will be lost forever.
The clonal germplasm repository system will, when completed,
consist of 12 facilities throughout the country. Locations
will be selected to provide the full range of climatic
requirements of the plants to be included in the repository

Her citation read "Besides providing a high level of
traditional services, Ms. Tontarski has been, for the past five
years, the TIS liaison officer to the agricultural libraries of
the Soviet Union. As a result of two visits to Moscow and her
continuing efforts locally our exchange and interlibrary loan
relationships remain strong, despite the political situation.
Ms. Tontarski is the official hostess and interpreter for
visiting groups who speak the Slavic languages. She maintains
the flow of publications to the NAL collections and makes quick
claims for those that have not been received. Her liaison
activities have proved to be of great benefit to USDA groups
dealing with the Soviets."

FOOD AND NUTRITION DOCUMENTS IN
Food and Nutrition is the first
authoritative microform reference
program for institutions supporting
programs in food service management,
nutrition, public health, home
economics, dietetics, social work and
related disciplines. The microform
collection is an ongoing program,
reflecting a cooperative effort between
the Microfilming Corporation of America
and the USDA's Food and Nutrition
Information Center (FNIC) located at
the National Agricultural Library.
The AGRICOLA data base includes the
FNIC subfile which provides biblio-
graphic citations and abstracts for
materials in the FNIC collection.
FNIC's holdings meet a wide range of
research needs in the areas of human
nutrition, food service management, and
nutrition education. FNIC's collection
offers a diversity of opinions and
possible solutions to problems of food
and nutrition. Included are materials
on the components of good nutrition as
well as the technical aspects of food
The Food and Nutrition base
collection's 934 documents were filmed
from the holdings of FNIC. The
microform collection is organized into
the following 13 subject areas: 1)
Consumer Protection, 2) Diet and Diet
Related Diseases, 3) Nutrition
Education and Career Development, 4)
Food Composition, 5) Food Service
Management, 6) Home Economics, 7) Human
Nutrition, 8) Legislation, 9) Nutrition

MICROFILMING OF AGRICULTURAL DOCUMENTS
The National Agricultural Library has
signed an agreement with the libraries of
the Universities of Delaware and
Maryland, Cornell and Rutgers Universi-
ties, and with Pennsylvania State Uni-
versity to microfilm the land-grant
agricultural publications of these in-
stitutions. A call for bids on the
filming is expected in early fall from
Pennsylvania State University which is
serving as the regional coordinating
institution. Dr. Keith Roe at
Pennsylvania State is coordinator of the
project (814-865-7056). The National
Agricultural Library batches its funds
with land-grant libraries to accomplish
this archival filming task. This
cooperative effort will provide a record
of an estimated 635,000 pages of land-
grant publications from these five
states. Publications of SUNI College of
Environmental Sciences and Forestry at
Syracuse will be included in the NewYork

INFORMATION NEEDS IN AGRICULTURE
How do you keep them down on the farm?
With innovative machinery and in-
creased productivity, according to a
new exhibition titled "The Changing
American Farm 1831-1981" at the
Smithsonian's National Museum of
American History from May 18 through
November 1 in the third floor special
In commemoration of the 150th
anniversary of McCormick's invention of
the American reaper, the Smithsonian
has mounted an exhibition of the
landmark machines that forever altered
and improved American farming. The
exhibition was made possible by a grant
from International Harvester.
"Ever since John Deere introduced his
, 'singing plow,' which boosted plowing
capability in the country by a factor
of 10, American farming has undergone a
tremendous growth and change," curator
John T. Schlebecker, organizer of the
exhibition says. The Deere invention
was called a singing plow because it
seemed to hum with its own vibration as
fI it sped across the prairie.
In a catalogue essay, Schlebecker
comments that "150 years ago one U.S.
farm worker produced enough food and
goods to supply four people. Today's
t farmer produces enough food for 68
people--a 17 fold increase."
For the exhibition, Schlebecker and
designer Deborah Bretzfelder have
devised an innovative display technique
Incorporating large photographic
dioramas, set on raised platforms, of
modern-day farming technology in each
of the four seasons. These murals form
a proscenium and a backdrop for the
early machines that made farming
