As part of this grant project, Digitization of Ecologic History in the Driftless Area of Minnesota, two herbarium specimen books of Winona area flora gathered in 1899 and 1912 were selected for digitization. These specimens were gathered by Winona Normal School students under the direction of Dr. John M. Holzinger, who was a faculty member in the late 1890s until 1920s and an internationally renowned botanist and bryologist who identified unique plant specimens in the area. In this collection you will be able to browse each individual specimen.
Requests to reproduce for educational purposes the items from the 1899 specimen book in this collection only are granted by the Winona County Historical Society.

Requests to reproduce for educational purposes the items from the 1912 specimen book in this collection only are granted by the Winona State University’s Coordinator of the Special Collections.

This project has been financed in part with funds provided by the State of Minnesota from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund through the Minnesota Historical Society.
