Kellerman, William Ashbrook, botanist, author and lecturer, was born at Ashville, Pickaway county, Ohio, May 1, 1850. He graduated at Cornell University with the class of 1874, and in 1881 received the degree of Ph. D. from the University of Zurich. Soon after graduating at Cornell he became an instructor in natural science in the Wisconsin State Normal School, where he continued for five years. From 1883 to 1891 he was professor of botany and zoölogy in the Kansas State Agricultural College at Manhattan, and for four years was botanist at the state experiment station. He was also the state botanist of Kansas for some time. In 1891 he went to the Ohio State University, where he continued his labors until his death. He was the founder and editor of the Journal of Mycology and the Mycological Bulletin; was the author of Flora of Kansas, Elementary Botany, Phyto Theca, and Spring Flora of Ohio, and was frequently called on to lecture before scientific and literary societies. He died in the spring of 1908 in a Guatemala forest, whither he had been leading botanical expeditions for several years.
