Excerpt from The Life and Writings of Rafinesque, Vol. 10
The Filson Club, an organization devoted primarily to the collection and preservation of original matter connected with the history of the State of Kentucky, has, since it recognizes Rafinesque as the first resident pr... ofessor-naturalist within the limits of the State, been particularly interested in this memoir, and its aid has been freely extended in the matter of sumptuous publica tion. The intelligent interest and historical enthusiasm of Colonel R. T. Durrett, LL. D., the President of the Club, was early enlisted in the project, partly for the reasons above given and partly because of personal interest in the career of a most remarkable man. He freely ofiered access to his superb and unrivaled library of Kentuckz'ana, without which courtesy much, which now appears, must long have remained unknown.
