Abstract

The end of May marked Ed Voss’ annual trip to northern Michigan—his botanical getaway since well before he became Professor of Biology and Curator at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. This locale fortuitously provided his inspiration for decades of pioneering research on the Michigan flora. His grandfather had acquired their cabin on the Straits of Mackinac in 1930 to avoid hay fever in their hometown of Dayton, Ohio. In September of that year, at the age of one, Ed spent his first night along the Straits (Voss 2008). It was here in northern Michigan that Ed established a lasting legacy from the many lives he touched in the classroom, and field, at the University of Michigan Biological Station (UMBS)
