Subject: more on maw

George Maw (1832-1912) was an interesting fellow. He owned a pottery
in Shropshire - perhaps Darwin knew him through the family interests in
the business. When he had accumulated enough money Maw seemed to allow his
interests turn to natural history - in particular, to botany. He travelled
quite a bit in Europe & in N. Africa and eventually in 1886 published a
monograph of the genus Crocus. There are several obits of Maw; e. g., in
Kew Bulletin 1912:155.
