"Many are called, but one is chosen"1
"Of those that run in the race, only one (usually) receiveth the prize." 2
when confronted with a taxonomic dilemma, we
may repeat an expression which goes back to Dr. Bold's major
professor, the late Dr. Robert A. Harper and perhaps even to
Harper's major professor, the renowned Dr. Eduard Strasburger:
"Nature mocks at human categories."
1 In reference to the number of juvenile sporophytes which develop from
more than one zygote on a single gametophyte.
2 In reference to polyembryony and seed development in conifers.
banquet at Caldwell ended, Dr. Bold rose to
recount humorous events in the predoctoral lives of each of his
former students in attendance. It was then and subsequently
that the idea for this small book congealed--a book to contain
contributions of a select number of Dr. Bold's former students
thereby reflecting a portion of his impact, as a great teacher,
upon the botanical world. This book, however humble, is sym-
bolic of the inspiration given by him to us and to many others.
HAROLD C. BOLD was born in New York City, June 16, 1909.
He received his B.A. degree from Columbia University in 1929,
his M.S. from the University of Vermont in 1931, and his Ph.D.
from Columbia in 1933. Positions held by Dr. Bold include:
Instructor of Botany, University of Vermont (1929-31).
Instructor of Biology, Vanderbilt University (1931-9).
Visiting Lecturer (1939-40) and Assistant Professor of
Botany, Barnard College, Columbia University (1940-2);
U.S. Naval Reserve, active duty (1942-5);
Associate Professor (1946-9) and Professor of Biology,
Vanderbilt University (1949-57).
Professor of Botany, University of Texas (1957-);
Chairman, Dept, of Botany, University of Texas (1962-7);
Chairman, Division of Biological Science, University of
Dr. Bold also has held a number of summer appointments
such institutions as the Chesapeake Biological Laboratory
(1934-7) and the Marine Biological Laboratory, Woods Hole,
Massachusetts (1954-8). He has served as Secretary (1955-8),
Vice-President (1965), and President (1968) of the Botanical
Society of America, Editor-in-Chief of the American Journal of
Botany (1958-65), and President of the Phycological Society of
This book has
at least one unique mission: It is destined to serve as a means
by which we (the students of Harold Bold) hope to establish one or more annual
awards to encourage outstanding work in the field of phycology, especially the
aspect of teaching. In view of this mission and the book's dedication to Harold
Bold by his former students, this volume contains exclusively original contribu-
tions by authors who were exposed, at some time in the past, to Harold Bold's
teaching and/or research.
The editors and authors of this small book would be pretentious even to suggest
that the contents herein represents a cross section of the broad area encompassed
by Bold's 60 or more Ph.D. students. Indeed, a number of these students are not
phycologists, but specialize in other areas of botanical or microbiological study.
Neither does this book cover any single area of phycology intensively. Rather,
the reader will find here a variety of topics, including reports of original research
and a few essays, with generally similar formats but written in the individual
author's styles, and for the purpose of informing the student, teacher, and re-
searcher of algae of current trends in the modern field of phycology.
The struggle to publish this book has not been without trauma. The book
went to press in August 1970, and passed through the hands of two printers
before the editors were satisfied with the quality of reproduction of photo- and
electron-micrographs. As a result of these delays, we apologize humbly for a few
reference citations, addresses and statements in the bibliographic section, and
occasional statements which may deserve some up-dating.
All profits from the sale of this book will go toward establishing the one or
more awards referred to above. In achieving this goal, we shall remain perpet-
ually grateful to a number of Harold Bold's former students for their assistance
in financing the publication of this book. They are: Gina Arce, Pat Archibald,
Emily Bell, Harry Bischoff, Malcolm Brown, Neal Buffaloe, Srisumon Chantana-
chat, Elenor Cox, Temd Deason, Richard Dykstra, Peter Edwards, Robert Groover,
Waiter Herndon, Larry Hoffman, Don Kapraun, Norma Lang, Bob McLean, Karl
Matter, Jerome Metzner, Rev. John Mullahy, Bruce Parker, George Pessoney,
Takashi Sawa, Eugene Shen, Richard Smith, Richard Starr, Dempsey Thomas,
Frank Trainer, Pat Walne.
