Description
Postcard dated 1904 from Max (Maximilian) Leichtlin of Baden Baden, thanking Burbank for sending papers on fundamental principles.
Maximilian Leichtlin (October 20 1831, Karlsruhe-September 3, 1910, Baden-Baden) was a German horticulturalist. From 1846 he worked as a gardener at several sites in Europe, then spent several years engaged in travels. After returning from South America in 1856, he worked for two years at the Van Houtte nursery in Ghent. He then spent the next sixteen years working with his brothers in a paper manufacturing business. Afterwards, he relocated to Baden-Baden, where he founded a botanical garden. He specialized in the cultivation and propagation of bulbous plants (lilies, tulips, irises and alliums). Botanical taxa with the specific epithet of leichtlinii commemorate his name, two examples being, Camassia leichtlinii (great camas) and Calochortus leichtlinii (Leichtlin's mariposa).--Wikipedia, June 15, 2018.
