The Cornell Plant Pathology Herbarium image collection covers the last 120 years of plant pathology, mycology, and agricultural practice. Many photographs document the preserved specimens of fungi and plant diseases in our collection, making them uniquely useful for biological research. Others illustrate agricultural equipment, scientists, and their experiments. The Cornell Plant Pathology Herbarium is home to several major photograph collections, together amounting to over 60,000 prints and negatives. We are digitizing these with support from the National Science Foundation and the Cornell Dept. of Plant Pathology and Plant-Microbe Biology.
The Franklin C. Daiber Botanical Collection includes images digitized from original 35mm slides representing over 400 varieties of botanical specimens found in the Delmarva region. Dr. Daiber, who took all of the photographs included, was instrumental in the establishment of the College of Marine Studies in 1970. The College is now known as the College of Earth, Ocean & Environment.
