In 1921 the writer spent a short time in a study of some of the interesting plants found near Muskogee, Oklahoma. It may be observed here that there have been some very remarkable changes in the region. The writer's first acquaintance with the place was in 1888 when it was only one of the numerous small villages on the line of the Missouri, Kansas & Texas R. R. In 1870 it was the chief town of the Creek nation and now is the administrative center of the five civilized tribes of Indians, with a population of over 50,000. The town itself is situated near the confluence of the Verdigris, Neosho and Arkansas rivers. The rivers have deeply carved into the rolling prairie and the flood plains of the smaller streams are rather narrow, although the flood plain of the Arkansas widens out considerably.
