Carte-de-visite portrait of Charles C. Parry (1823-1890), American Botanist. Parry is most famous for his botanical research in the southern Rocky Mountains of Colorado. A self-described "exceptionally unselfish and kind," man, Parry never published a book and catered more to the public at large than the scientific community, focusing on newly-discovered plants that he found to have ornamental value. Shown here standing in a full-length portrait, carrying a tube-shaped container. Handwritten inscription at the bottom reads, "C.C. Parry, 1865."
