|Contribution||Reported a bacillus (later Erwinia) tracheiphilus) as cause of wilt disease in cucumbers.|
|Notes||E. F. Smith. This was the beginning of his studies, which were to become a major force in plant bacteriology (little progress had been made since the first report of bacteria as plant pathogens in 1877).|
