NOVEMBER 23 -- TODAY IN THE HISTORICAL SCIENCES

1553/1616: PROSPERO ALPINI, botanist and physician, is born at Marostica,
Italy; he will die on this day in 1616 at Padua.  One of the first European
physicians to study plants in a non-medicinal context, Alpini will travel to
Egypt and Crete, and will publish the first description of the Egyptian flora,
_De Plantis Aegypti_ (1592).  In 1603 Alpini will assume the directorship of
the botanical garden at the University of Padua; his son, Alpino, will succeed
him in this position after Alpini's death.

Today in the Historical Sciences is a feature of Darwin-L, an international
discussion group on the history and theory of the historical sciences.  For
