During the summer of 1908, in connection with work at the Marine Biological Laboratory, located at Friday Harbor, Washington, two visits were made to an interesting little isle and lying several miles to the south of the Station. The position of this island gave special interest to its algal flora; and, its borders, with adjacent shorelines, constituted one of the richest collecting grounds of the region. The name “Iowa Rock" was proposed for this island, and local revenue officers have taken steps to make this name official on the government maps of that region.
