Ernest Henry Wilson (1876-1930) was the furthest traveled of all the Arnold Arboretum’s plant explorers of the early twentieth century. In addition to the many thousands of plant, cultural, and landscape images he brought back from Asia, Wilson was also a prolific photographer of the Arnold Arboretum grounds and indeed the entire New England landscape. Our Visual Archives include historical landscape images of The Arnold Arboretum, in addition to our recently digitized collection of Ernest Henry Wilson’s New England Trees.
