1732: JOSE CELESTINO BRUNO MUTIS Y BOSSIO is born at Cadiz, Spain.  A student
of medicine at Seville and Madrid, Mutis will be appointed physician to the
viceroy of the Spanish colony of Nueva Granada, and he will sail to America in
1760.  He will travel extensively, collecting plants throughout Nueva Granada,
and will correspond with many botanists in Europe including Linnaeus.  He will
die in Santa Fe de Bogota (later Bogota, Colombia) in 1808, but the principal
report of his explorations, _La Flora de la real expedicion botanica del Nuevo
Reino de Granada_, will remain unpublished until 1954.

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