DUNN, Ada Nesta (1908-2000) was born in Saskatchewan, Canadian. The family moved to southern California where Dunn attended UCLA, graduating in botany. At UCLA she met botanist, Joseph Ewan (1909-1999), and they married in 1935 and were married for 64 years. In 1937 the Ewans moved to Colorado where Joe Ewan became curator of botany.

The Ewans had three daughters:

  • Kathleen Ewan [Harris]
  • Dorothy Ewan [Nemecek]
  • Marjorie Ewan

While Dunn was still a student, she visited Santa Rosa and Anacapa islands where she collected a few plant specimens.
