Gilmore is from here in Lincoln and has long been an ethnobotany hero of mine. I've started a new project on Great Plains botany/horticulture---the relationship between peoples and plants., so on my last research trip I looked at his collections in North Dakota repositories. And there is a lot of his stuff here at the Nebraska State Historical Society, where he worked. His Arikara work is great; it's wonderful that it's on line.
