Stanford Libraries has acquired historical materials documenting the discovery and exhibitions of giant sequoia trees from the 1850s to the early 20th century. The collection, assembled by Livermore-based hydrogeologist and independent scholar Gary D. Lowe, contains over 4,000 items gathered over 20 years.
