Upon his death in 1962, he left various universities his collections and journal libraries, including Yale University with 5 boxes of archival material. Using this material, Stephanie Day (Howard University), during her internship in the 2006 Harvard Forest Summer Research Program in Forest Ecology, compiled this material and designed a website about the past knowledge of pitcher plants and the work of Frank Morton Jones. The Harvard Forest Summer Research Program in Forest Ecology is a program supported by the U.S. National Science Foundation through grant 0452254. Additional support for this project provided by NSF grant 0541680.I .
