Katherine Furbish is known for her drawing of an endangered species, the Furbish Lousewort, which was named after her. Years later, in 1976, it caused the U. S. government to halt construction on a huge dam in Dickey, Maine, while a debate raged with environmentalists. A lifelong resident and botanist of Brunswick, Maine, she painted more than a thousand meticulously accurate watercolors of flowers and plants, and assembled them into portfolios, "The Flora of Maine," which she presented to Bowdo (showing 500 of 1181 characters).
