A. G. Huntsman


While Merritt Lyndon Fernald was occupied with collecting in the mountains of the Gaspé Peninsula of Québec, in 1923 [see (archived - may load slowly)], the Biological Board of Canada organized a field survey of the Strait of Belle Isle, and invited Fernald along.

When it became apparent that Fernald would be unable to attend, A. G. Huntsman, the Director of the Biological Board, undertook to collect plants for Fernald himself. Many fine collections of "limestone plants", from both sides of the Strait of Belle Isle, resulted.
