Born in Oakland, CA, I earned my BA in Botany at Berkeley in 1949, then taught high school in Oakland. From 1959-1979 my husband, Bill and I taught sciences at Marymount Girls Secondary School, Mzuzu, Malawi, Central Africa. While there I did extensive collecting for U. Malawi, Kew Herbarium and St. Louis Botanical Garden, with a minimal collection to UC Berkeley at the request of Dr. L. Constance (a total of 14,363 collections in 12 years). google Pawekiae. We returned to the Bay Area and settled in Mountain View for our second professions - myself a commercial seed analyst at Ferry Morse Seed Co, he a technical photographer at United Technologies. (My custom license plate is ICAWEED). I was, thirdly, for 7 years, a library assistant at Alza Pharmaceuticals in Palo Alto, while my husband did tax accounting. Especially after retirement (myself in 1992), we RV camped until 2014 to do photography for our own pleasure.
