On Her Own Terms

This chapter discusses the enduring legacy of Annie Montague Alexander, which is shown through the collections she gathered with Louise Kellogg. This legacy is further supplemented by seventeen taxa that are named in her honor. The discussion shows that Alexander did not change her annual cycle of activity, even when she was in her early eighties. The only change she made was that she stopped traveling abroad; instead, she and Kellogg hosted small dinner parties for researchers who returned after an extended field trip. Alexander's find of a rare variety of grass and her death on September 10, 1950, are discussed in the latter portion of the chapter.

Keywords:   legacy, Annie Montague Alexander, Louise Kellogg, collections, taxa, annual activity cycle, rare grass variety, death
