During the past twenty years, under the incumbency of a number of professors in Coe College, the college herbarium was enriched by the collection of a large number of plants indigenous to Linn County. For many years these were poorly housed, room for herbarium facilities was lacking, and the collection was consequently neglected. The building of a new science hall has made it possible for the first time to revise this collection. The author has also spent three seasons collecting specimens in Linn County and, through the kindness of Mr. Geo. H. Berry, had access to the herbarium of the latter, which contains a number of species not found in the Coe herbarium. The accompanying list, then, should be fairly complete.
