Her library

Pièce D1Over the years, Felicitas Svejda gathered information and documents related to her areas of expertise and research. She did create many files on topics such as the history of roses, Rosa rugosa and chromosome numbers. Some files consist of handwritten notes, for publication projects.

Occasionnally, Felicitas Svejda recorded certain information on small pieces of paper as evidenced by this list of selection codes inscribed on a sheet of a notepad advertising a commercial enterprise. The handwritten list of plants in the Ottawa area described in the sub-series JBM 10, S7, SS2 is another example.

Mrs. Svejda donated to the Montréal Botanical Garden Library her collection of books, periodicals and other documentation dealing largely with roses but also on other topics related to horticulture. Documents annotated by Felicitas Svejda were integrated into its archives. The others have been incorporated into the library's collections.
