This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following obituary is from an anonymous source who has also provided the portrait image of Caroline Haynes by Addison Thomas Millar. Millar died in 1913. Haynes had a studio at 253 West 42nd Street, N.Y.C., as did the Jones
brothers. If there were any photos of Haynes they probably all were destroyed.

Specialist in Hepaticae Study Gave Collection to Harvard - Former Pianist, Painter

Miss Caroline Coventry Haynes, a botanist, who was formerly a pianist and a painter, died yesterday in her home, 910 Park Avenue, after a brief illness. Her age was 93.

Descended from Huguenot and Dutch settlers here, Miss Haynes, early in her life was a pianist of talent. Later, she became a painter. A resident of Paris for
several years, she studied painting under Adolphe William Bouguereau and Alfred Stevens and exhibited at the Paris Salon. Miss Haynes later came under the influence of Claude Monet, the French impressionist.

In 1902, she abandoned painting for cryptogamic botany. She studied at the New York Botanical Garden for six years. Beginning in 1903 and continuing for many years, she contributed papers, most of them illustrated by her own
drawings, to scientific publication.

In many parts of the United States, Miss Haynes collected Hepaticae, small, often mosslike plants, which she described in her writings. Dr. Franz Verdoorn, the noted botanist, recently wrote that "there have been few American botanists who contributed as much to North American hepaticology as Miss Haynes did." In 1942, she presented most of her collections to Harvard University.

Although not a collector in recent years because of her age, she continued
her interest in botany and maintained a large correspondence on the

She was a founder and former president of the National Association of
Women Artists, a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement
of Science and a member of the Archaeological Institute of America,
American Watercolor Society, Horticultural Society of New York, Botanical Society of American and several charitable groups.
