Oudemans, Corneille Antoine Jean Abram

Born: 1825, Amsterdam, Holland. Died: 1906, Arnhem, Gld, Holland.



Physician, educated at Amsterdam, Paris and Vienna; from 1859-96 Professor in the University of Amsterdam. He specialized in pharmacognosy and mycology.



In 1871/72 he presented herbarium material of Cinchona species, cultivated in Java, to the Herb. Kol. Mus. Haarlem (= Ind. Inst. Amsterdam). To our knowledge he himself never visited Java, probably he received the collection from van Gorkom (see there) or someone else.
