Administrative history

In 1947, Frank J. Rimoldi, a professor of applied tropical botany who taught landscape and conservation, began the arboretum on the University of Miami campus with a teaching collection of 250 trees and 100 shrubs. In 1949, the Arboretum was named in honor and memory of Dr. John C. Gifford, the first graduate forester in the United States, an expert on tropical woods and influential professor of tropical forestry. By 1951, the Arboretum, under the guidance of Chairman of the Botany Department, Taylor Alexander, had expanded to over 500 species.
