Note from E. H. Walker, 1958: “no reference has been made to this list in many years. There are so few full determinations on this list that I think it is quite useless. If it is to be kept, it should be better bound and perhaps put in the library”, later added” best thrown away” Oct. 7, 1977. This list documents botanical specimens collected from May 1939 to April 1948. Dates continuous from May 1939 to October 1940, then sporadic. Locations include Mount Omei (Mount Emei or Emei Shan) in Sichuan, China and Tien-Chuan-hsien (currently Tianquan Xian).
