These book cases, cabinets, and shelf-units house the more extensive collections from individuals plus the history of the Herbarium and the Department of Botany at Ohio State. The materials derive principally from past faculty members in Botany at Ohio State, plus from other persons who have contributed substantially to the growth and development of the OSU Herbarium (e.g., Janice Beatley, Bridge Cooke). These collections are arranged in the archives room alphabetically by the last name of the person.

For each person, in addition to the materials listed below, additional documents may be located in the Filing Cabinet C (vertical files).
