Abstract

In the summer of 1937 the State University of Iowa and the Iowa Lakeside Laboratory each received, through the courtesy of Mr. C. W. Schramm of Des Moines sections of a very large red cedar (Juniperus virqiniana L.). This tree had grown near Lake Okoboji, Dickinson County, Iowa. According to .Mr. Schramm the tree died sometime between 1880 and 1890. He cut it down previous to 1900 and worked it up into numerous ornaments and pieces of furniture. A fragment which was left lay in the yard of his summer cottage at Lake Okoboji from 1907 to 1937 when he gave it to the University. Even with this exposure it is in good preservation.
