Introduction to L Plates - Mycological Contributions of L Plates
Mycological contributions of l platesHarry Morton Fitzpatrick's contributions to mycology include monographs of the Coryneliaceae and Nitschkiaceae. Fitzpatrick is best known for his influential text The Lower Fungi. Phycomycetes, which was published in 1930, and is credited for the posthumous publication of Whetzel's 1945 monograph of the Sclerotineaceae. Fitzpatrick took an active role in the founding of the Mycological Society of America (MSA) at New Orleans, Louisiana on December 29, 1931. Fitzpatrick served as the first Secretary-Treasurer of the MSA (19321935), as the fifth President of the MSA (1936), and as Historian of the MSA until his death. He published biographies of mycologists George Francis Atkinson, Curtis Gates Lloyd, Fred Carleton Stewart, and Herbert Hice Whetzel. He trained Clark Thomas Rogerson and Richard P. Korf, two students that would become prominent mycologists.Taxa describedAcanthonitschkea macrobarbata Fitzp. 1923Blastocladiales Fitzp. 1930Caliciopsis pseudotsugae Fitzp. 1942Caliciopsis symploci Fitzp. 1942Calyculosphaeria Fitzp. 1923Calyculosphaeria macrospora Fitzp. 1923Claudopus subdepluens Fitzp. 1915Corynelia bispora Fitzp. 1920Corynelia brasiliensis Fitzp. 1920Corynelia jamaicensis Fitzp. 1920Corynelia nipponensis Fitzp. 1920Coryneliospora Fitzp. 1942Hysterangium stoloniferum var. americanum Fitzp. 1913Lagenulopsis Fitzp. 1942Nitschkia floridana Fitzp. 1923Nitschkieae Fitzp. 1923Rostronitschkia Fitzp. 1919Rostronitschkia nervincola Fitzp. 1919Thamnidiaceae Fitzp. 1930Tripospora macrospora Fitzp. 1942Tympanopsis uniseriata Fitzp. 1923------Geography of l platesThe former French commune covered 2,792 hectares, a high proportion of it being the Saint-Sever forest.

He attended high school inCrawfordsville, Indiana, where he became acquainted with mycologist Herbert Hice Whetzel, then a student atWabash College, who stimulated his interest in mycology. In 1905, he entered Wabash College, where Professor Mason B. Thomas, a great teacher of botany, would further influence Fitzpatrick to study mycology. Encouraged by Whetzel, then Professor at Cornell University, and aided by Professor Thomas, he transferred to Cornell in 1908 as an assistant to Professor George Francis Atkinson in the Department of Botany and received the A.B. degree from the Arts College in 1909. He then entered the Graduate School at Cornell as an Assistant and later as an Instructor in Plant Pathology. He studied mycology under Professor Atkinson. He was awarded the Ph.D. degree in 1913. He was immediately appointed Assistant Professor by Whetzel in the recently organized Department of Plant Pathology at Cornell, and began the work of teaching mycology to which he devoted the remainder of his life. He was raised to a full Professorship in 1922.Harry Morton Fitzpatrick died in Ithaca, New York on December 8, 1949.------Club career of l platesBorn in Ro Cuarto, Crdoba, Aimar started his professional career with Club Atltico River Plate, but could only amass three first-team appearances over two seasons. In 200304, he played for fellow Argentine Primera Divisin club Estudiantes de La Plata.After an unassuming spell in the Belgian Third Division with Union Namur Fosses-La-Ville, Aimar returned to his country, joining Club Atltico Belgrano. He moved abroad again shortly after, spending the following months with Israel's F.C. Ashdod and finishing the campaign with another team in Argentina, Primera B Nacional's Club Atltico Aldosivi.For 200809, Aimar moved overseas for the third time, again having no impact whatsoever as he only appeared in four Segunda Liga matches (out of a possible 30) for Portuguese side G.D. Estoril Praia.Aimar signed with hometown club Estudiantes de Ro Cuarto in 2009, where he remained until his retirement nine years later. Immediately afterwards, he was appointed its general manager.------Description and history of l platesNamed for its builder and first owner, the colorful J. J. McAlester, for whom McAlester was named, it began in 1870 as a four-room log house. At the time, it was located in Tobucksy County, Choctaw Nation, in the Indian Territory. J. J. McAlester later surrounded the log structure with a single-story house and also built a much larger two-story Queen Anne style house joined by a breezeway to the smaller structure. Its furnishings, many of which remain to this day, reflected the prosperity and position that the McAlester family enjoyed in the community. The building was renovated in 1960 by J. L. McAlester, grandson of J. J. McAlester. In 1980, McAlester House was added to the National Register of Historic Places.In the early 2000s, it was bought by its present owners who have continued the work of renovation and preservation. The house was featured in 2008 in a segment of the HGTV channel's If Walls Could Talk program. The segment continues on HGTV reruns and has been rebroadcast as recently as September 22, 2009.------French Academy of Sciences of l platesIn 1786, he was elected to the French Academy of Sciences. The academy was dissolved during the French Revolution, and Lilset Geoffroy was not among those reinstated when it reformed in 1793, possibly because of the distance between himself in the colonies and Paris, but possibly for prejudicial reasons. Unable to return to France, he founded the Socit des Sciences et Arts de l'Ile de France on October 9, 1801 (succeeded in 1805 by the Socit Royale des Arts et Sciences de Maurice, which persists to this day). Cofounders of the group were Jacques Milbert, Jean-Baptiste Dumont, Jacques Delisse, and Jean-Baptiste Bory de St. Vincent. Until 1934, he was the only man of color to have been a member of the academy.Among the many works of Lislet-Geoffroy were a map of the Isles of France and Reunion published first in 1797 and second in a corrected version in 1802. He also published a chart of the Seychelles and a map of Madagascar. He made a voyage to Madagascar in 1787, and his account of the voyage was published in Malte-Bruns Annales de Voyages. Outside of geography, he worked in geology, showing that the shoal, Isle Plate around Mauritius was formed by the debris of the crater of a volcano. He also took detailed measurement of the climate of Mauritius for almost 50 years ending in 1834.Lislet Geofroy died February 8, 1836.------Early life of l platesLislet Geoffroy was born on August 23, 1755 in Saint-Pierre, Runion and died on February 8, 1836 in Port-Louis (Mauritius). Lislet was the son of Jean-Baptiste Geoffroy a white, French engineer working in Mauritius (then called Ile de France) and a freed black slave from Guinea. Lislet's father had freed his mother in order to take her as his mistress, but because Lislet was illegitimate, he took the name of the place of his birth for his last name. When he was 38 years old, his father legitimatized him, and he took the last name Lislet-Geoffroy. His father was reputed to have been born in Paris and be of Breton ethnicity. Lislet Geoffroy stated that his mother was named Niama and was the daughter of Toucu Niamba, King of Galam in modern day Senegal.Outside of geography, he worked in geology, showing that the shoal, Isle Plate around Mauritius was formed by the debris of the crater of a volcano.He was the uncle of abolitionist novelist Louis Timagne Houat. He married and had two children. His wife died in 1804.------Jean Baptiste Seroux d'Agincourt of l platesJean Baptiste Louis George Seroux D'Agincourt (5 April 1730 24 September 1814) was a French archaeologist and historian.Born in Beauvais, he was a descendant of the counts of Namur, and in his youth he served as an officer in a regiment of cavalry. Finding it necessary to quit the army in order to take charge of his younger brothers who had been left orphans, he was appointed a farmer-general by Louis XV. In 1777 he visited England, Germany and the Dutch Republic; and in the following year he travelled through Italy, with the view of exploring thoroughly the remains of ancient art. He afterwards settled in Rome and devoted himself to preparing the results of his researches for publication.He died in 1814, leaving the work, which was being issued in parts, unfinished; but it was carried on by M. Gence, and published complete under the title L'Histoire de l'Art par les monuments, depuis sa dcadence au quatrime sicle jusqu' son renouvellement au seizime (6 vols. fol. with 325 plates, Paris, 1823). In the year of his death D'Agincourt published in Paris a Recueil de fragments de sculpture antique, en terre cuite.
