Joseph Rock explored western China in the 1920's and '30s, collecting plants for the Arnold Arboretum and writing articles (ten in the years 1924-35) for National Geographic. He spent some of his last years in Seattle and, short on funds, sold a collection of his books to the University of Washington for $25,000. Pratyeka hosts 600+ of his photographs from 1924-1926.
