His was literally a unified field: the place of Nelson’s institutional limits became the subject of his work, interweaving a new regional herbarium with extensive public service and abiding personal response in that very landscape. Institutionally, Nelson faced limits that deepened his commitment to building the Rocky Mountain Herbarium. When Benedict Anderson described the looping arcs of colonial bureaucrats’ relocations and promotions in Imagined Communities (1983) he argued that new nations—including institutions of nation-building, like censuses and museums—emerged in part from the artificial limits these functionaries faced in career advancement: they could not get work in the centers of imperial power, so they created nations and institutions where they were.

His unexpected joy in the field and herbarium in Wyoming was the accidental beginning of Nelson’s career as a botanist, and at the same time the kiss of death for his ambition to work elsewhere. As he became more involved in the tasks of field collecting and herbarium organization in Wyoming (alongside his other duties, not to mention family life with two young daughters), he unsuccessfully sought new positions. One of his Harvard instructors, William F. 12 Residency requirements at prominent botanical schools and the necessity of keeping up with all his work at home made the PhD an uncertain goal at best.

Nelson’s location in Wyoming, his sudden delight in botany, and his unabashed (if now dated) expressions of enthusiasm for nature, together gave him the motivation and the resources to use his science in the service of a broad public. His work opened the flora of Wyoming to himself, his colleagues, and the public.
