Amrita Solanky Megan Styles Anthropology 210 July 24 th 2008 Homework #3 When was the garden built, and what was its original purpose? The garden was built in 1911 (or 87 years prior to when that article was written). Its original purpose was to provide medicinal extracts for the School of Pharmacy. Why did the Garden fall into disrepair after WWII? After WWII most medicines became available in the form of chemically synthesized compounds, and plant extracts became obsolete. Soon after, in the 1970’s, the School of Pharmacy went through budget cuts and the garden quickly atrophied from lack of funding. How large is the garden presently, and about how many species are grown there? The garden is now the largest of its kind in the Western hemisphere, and contains over 600 different species. Which academic department is currently in charge of its upkeep? The upkeep of the garden has now been bequeathed unto the Department of Botany.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
