SB03 T.P. Stokoe: man, myths, flowers SPECIAL (available in SOUTH AFRICA only)
Amida Johns and Peter Slingsby have scoured the Cape’s archives and its herbaria to uncover the intriguing story of Thomas Pearson Stokoe. Born in the tenements of Tyneside in 1868, TP Stokoe left England in 1911 with a team of lithographers to staff the photographic department of the Cape Times Limited. He was 43 years old. Within a few years at the Cape he had established a reputation as an outstanding mountaineer and botanical collector of note. More than thirty species of plants – and a beetle – were named in his honour over the next 48 years. He was also the original collector of hundreds more plants.
