István Racz and Zsolt Debreczy are world-renowned denrologists with a long and storied association with Arnold Arboretum. They are authors of Conifers around the world : conifers of the temperate zones and adjacent regions, published in 2011 by DendroPress.

The Hunnewell Building is located at the Main Entrance of the Arnold Arboretum. The facility houses our Visitor Center, Lecture Hall, Library and Archives, and Herbarium. The building was constructed in 1892 and fully renovated with improved accessibility in 1992. It is named in honor of Horatio Hollis Hunnewell (1810-1902), who was a major contributor to the institution. You can read more about H. H. Hunnewell and the The Hunnewell Estates Historic District in Arnoldia [pdf].
