DeAlton Saunders, '93, is one of the
most promising of the recent gradu
ates of tlie University. He graduated
form Alford University in '00 and af
ter teaching school in Florida for a
year, came hero taking his B. Sc. in
'0.1. He took masters degree in bot
anj in '94, presenting as his thesis
a monograph of the "Algae of Nebrns-
J ka," wlwrrti who pouched as a part
ot the Flora of Nebraska. He was
then at the head of the natural sci
ence department In the Lincoln high
school from '94 to '90. In. '90 he was
elected orofessor of hotany in the
South Dakota agricultural college, and
nr the same time was appointed direc
tor of the United States experiment
station in the same tnte.
iProfessor Saunders has studied for
the past three summers at the Hop
kins Seaside Lnbratory, working all
the while on his monograph. "The
i-toearpaceae (sea-weed) of the Pa
cific Coast." which he has just pub
lished and which is attracting consid
erable attention. This last summer he
went south to collect stoneworks for
Or. Allen of New York, and. incident
ally, some seaweeds for his own
work. Some time ago Dr. Allen was
in the west and Mr. Saunders worked
with and discovered three now species
for him. He was pleased and1 said he
wruld pay Saunders' expenses on a
southern "collecting trip. Later Dr.
Allen lost most of his property and
wa.5 obliged to abandon the idea of the
irin blunders was disappointed, be
cause he was anxious to make the
trip. Shortly afterwards he received
a letter from a young lady who had
been a patient of Dr. Allen's ami who
knew how disappointed the latter wiis
about the fallue of his plan, enclosing
enough money for the trip.
Saunders is mcnVber of the Botani
cal Seminar, lie also belongs to the
Alpha Theta Chi fraternity, .loom a
year ago he committed' matrimony,
the first party in the deal being a
young lady from his old home in Al
a few days before that date. Except
