University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, Robert W. Freckmann Herbarium (UWSP)

Dr. Robert Freckmann, Professor Emeritus of Biology, taught vascular plant taxonomy and agrostology at UW-Stevens Point for 32 years. Starting with one cabinet of about 1,000 plant specimens in 1969, he (and Dr. Frank W. Bowers) built this herbarium into the 3rd largest in Wisconsin, with over 200,000 specimens. It was named in his honor upon his retirement.
