Collectors of the UNC Herbarium

Rogers McVaugh
(30 May 1909 – 24 Sept. 2009)

Rogers McVaugh, research professor of botany and the UNC Herbarium's curator of Mexican plants, blows out the candles
on a cake held by his son, Michael McVaugh, professor of history. The elder McVaugh, celebrating his 98th birthday in 2007
at Coker Hall, was on the Carolina faculty from 1980 until 2009. The Herbarium's database includes a few dozen specimens collected by McVaugh, primarily in the 1930s and 1940s, and as the collection is catalogued more will likely be added.

A native of New York City, McVaugh earned a bachelor's degree with highest honors in botany from Swarthmore College in 1931 and a doctorate in botany from the University of Pennsylvania in 1935. He published his first paper, "Recent Changes in the Composition of a
Local Flora," in 1935 and his latest publication, "Marcus E. Jones in Mexico, 1892" in 2005.

McVaugh continued to work into his nineties on Flora Novo-Galiciana, a multi-volume work focusing on the diverse flora of a region in western Mexico. In 1984, he was awarded the Botanical Society of America’s Henry Allan Gleason Award for his work on this project.

The University of North Carolina has databased a few dozen specimens collected by Rogers McVaugh. Most were collected in Georgia in the 1930's and 1940's. As NCU's collection continues to be cataloged, no doubt more specimens will be found. The vast majority of McVaugh's specimens—a conservative estimate is 23,000—are held by the Herbarium of the University of Michigan (MICH).

Numerous herbaria hold McVaugh's specimens including MICH, GA, US, UC, US, and NY.

McVaugh was a Research Professor of Botany at the University of North Carolina from 1980 until 2009.
