KNOCHE, Edward Louis Herman (1870-1945), born July 26, 1870 in San Jose, California of German parents, he studied botany at Stanford University, entering as a freshman in 1895, receiving his A.B. in botany in 1899. His parents died shortly after the turn of the century, and Knoche, an only child, inherited their wealth. He went to France for further botanical study, attending the the University of Montpellier, graduating with an advanced degree in 1923. Knoche was particularly interested in island vegetation; he collected specimens on islands over much of the world. A majority of his work focused on the Balearic Islands.

In September 1919 Knoche collected plants on San Clemente Island, Santa Cruz and San Miguel Islands. His plant collections and library of 5000 volumes were given to Stanford University.

  • San Clemente Island (1919)
  • San Miguel Island (1919)
