Biography:

Born near Wabash, Nebraska, on 23 April 1882, Raymond John Pool was the third of five brothers. He attended public school for a time in Plattsmouth and then completed his high school education at Weeping Water, Nebraska. Pool served in the 1st Infantry, Company D, of the Nebraska National Guard from 1901 to 1903, and he received an honorable discharge with the rank of 1st Lieutenant. During high school he met Charles Bessey, the noted Nebraska botanist and founder of the University of Nebraska's Botany Department. This early meeting and subsequent encouragement from his parents, William and Mary Pool, convinced Pool to pursue his interests in botany and forestry. Pool attended the University of Nebraska where, under the tutelage of Charles Bessey, he received his A.B. in 1907, A.M. in 1908, and Ph.D. in 1913. While attending the University of Nebraska, Pool met Martha (May) Strangland, whom he married on 30 June 1909.

Pool spent his career teaching botany at the University, beginning as an instructor of botany in 1907. In 1911, Pool became an assistant professor and curator of the University Herbarium. The University promoted him to Professor of Botany in 1914. Following Charles Bessey's death in 1915, Pool became Chairman of the Botany Department, a position he held until his retirement in 1948. Besides teaching at UNL, Pool taught at the University of Michigan's Biological Station in 1910. He also taught at Colorado State Teachers College in the summers from 1922 to 1924. After his retirement from UNL, Pool taught as a visiting professor at the University of Illinois, Carbondale, from 1955 to 1956.

Besides teaching, Pool had various other botanical and related scientific pursuits. He served as the Director of the State Botanical Survey of Nebraska from 1907 to 1948. Some of his early research focused on the effects of air pollution on plant growth. He served as a consultant to several large organizations engaged in smelting ores in the western United States, Canada, and Mexico. In 1920, the Federal Court in Utah appointed Pool to the Salt Lake Smelter Commission, where he examined the effects of air pollution on the Salt Lake Valley vegetation. Pool became an official delegate to the Fifth International Botanical Congress at Cambridge University, England, in 1930. He was active in a number of international, national, and local scientific societies and organizations, including the Ecological Society of America, the American Society of Plant Taxonomists, the Nebraska Academy of Sciences, Sigma Xi, and Phi Beta Kappa. Pool was a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and served as President of the American Microscopical Society in 1941.

As a researcher and author, Pool wrote numerous articles and several books with vegetation as a central theme. Some of his best-known works include Flowers and Flowering Plants, Marching with the Grasses, and A Study of the Vegetation of the Sandhills of Nebraska. He received numerous awards, including the Lincoln Kiwanis Club Service Medal for Distinguished Service in 1954 and the Sons and Daughters of Nebraska Distinguished Service Medal in 1961. Posthumously, Pool was elected to the Builders of Nebraska Hall of Fame.

Pool died at the age of 84 on 2 February 1967.

Scope and Content:

The papers of Raymond J. Pool relate to his work as a botanist and professor at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The collection contains correspondence, manuscripts, and published materials by Pool, as well as botanical sketches and resource materials, class and field notes, and biographical items. Also included in the collection are photographs and negatives, lantern slides, and glass plate negatives.

Series Description: Series 1: Correspondence Boxes 1-2

The bulk of the correspondence is between Pool and various colleagues at other institutions, as well as some amateur scientists, and generally relates to Pool's botanical research. Included is Pool's correspondence within the University of Nebraska, as well as that with family and friends. Of special interest is the correspondence from the 1920s dealing with his work on the Salt Lake Smelter Commission. Other interesting items include a letter from the American Institute of Sacred Literature (21 Feb. 1924) and a letter from the Tennessee Evolution Case Fund (29 Sept. 1926) asking Pool to support their efforts in reconciling the controversy over the theory of evolution.

Series 2: Manuscripts Boxes 2-6

The manuscripts in this series consist of drafts of Pool's published articles and books, as well as reports sent to various organizations and agencies, addresses, and speeches. Notable manuscripts include Handbook of Nebraska Trees, Flowers and Flowering Plants, and White Man Versus the Prairie. Also included in this series is the 1926 report about his observations on the Salt Lake Smelter Commission.

Series 3: Articles and Reprints Boxes 6-8

This series consists of published articles and reprints from various magazines and professional journals. Bibliographies of Pool's works are also included in this series. The published articles are arranged chronologically. For books written or edited by Pool, see resources listed below.

Series 4: Class and Field Notes Boxes 8-11, Oversize

This section of the collection contains field notes from Pool's botanical surveys and other research projects. Also included in this series are class notes taken by Pool as a student and lecture notes he used while teaching classes at UNL. This series contains Pool's field notes from the 1920 Salt Lake Smelter Commission project. There are also lists of publications that would be of value to students studying taxonomy, specifically for North America.

Series 5: Botanical Sketches and Illustrations Boxes 11-16, Oversize

Pool used a number of these sketches and illustrations in his published works. Some of the sketches are hand drawn in pencil or ink while others are finalized reproductions. Other items of interest are the tree root distribution charts from various counties in Nebraska and across the Great Plains.

Series 6: Botanical Resource Materials Box 16

This series contains a variety of botanical resource materials, including articles and addresses by Charles Bessey and J. E. Weaver. A manuscript of Walter Kiener's master's thesis is also included in this section. Kiener is another noted botanist and was a student of Raymond Pool.

Series 7: Biographical and Miscellany Box 17, oversize

Biographical and genealogical materials are located in this series. Other items include newspaper clippings, souvenir post cards from Pool's travels, and membership cards and certificates from various organizations Pool took part in. This series also contains Pool's 1918 application for a U.S. Army commission.

Series 8: Photographs and Negatives Boxes 18-24, oversize

The bulk of the photographic materials in this collection relate to Pool's botanical research. Most of the photos were taken during Pool's travels through the western United States and through Europe. Pool visited Colorado a number of times and took many photos of the alpine vegetation. It was on one of these visits that he met Walter Kiener and convinced him to come to UNL to study botany. Photographs of Pool and his wife are located in this series. Of special interest are the photographs and negatives taken by Pool during his work on the Salt Lake Smelter Commission from 1920. They show the effects of sulpher dioxide pollution on area plant growth. Also of interest are the photographs and negatives from 1918 of the Nebraska National Forest near Halsey, Nebraska. The last seven folders of this series contain glass plate negatives. The lantern slides in this series consist entirely of images from Nebraska between the years 1909 and 1912. Most of the images are of plants or landscapes and are arranged alphabetically by county. Of special interest are two images of sod houses. The bulk of the images come from Cherry and Thomas counties in Nebraska.
