I have started to collect photographs of historical aspects of
photosynthesis: photos of historical authorities, and their coworkers and
of instruments used in classical and historical experiments.
I would appreciate receiving this material; I plan to give
due credit to
those sending this material (please provide the necessary information: your
name and address; full names of things and persons in the photo; date and
place of photo; credit line; what was the person known for, etc; any
reference). The idea is to make this available on web pages and ultimately
selected ones in articles or books in the future.
Please send materials to: Govindjee (Department of Plant Biology, UIUC,
265 Morrill Hall, 505 S. Goodwin Avenue, Urbana, IL 61801, USA). If you
have electronic copies available, you can send by E-mail attachments as
"jpeg" files to gov at uiuc.edu
I would also appreciate knowing Web sites you are aware of that deal with
historical aspects related to photosynthesis and associated persons. I know
of one dealing with Sir GG Stokes.Some photos are available on my web page:
