John C. Tacoma Mushroom Collection
The John C. Tacoma Mushroom Slide Collection, 1968-1978, consist of 1,329 slides of mushrooms common to the Midwest region. The slides were taken mainly in Indiana and its state parks during a 10-year period by John C. Tacoma, also known as the "Mushroom Man."
All identification of the images was done by John C. Tacoma. Information about an image is presented as written by John C. Tacoma. The question marks (?) in the series listing mean Tacoma was unsure of the identification but recorded his best guess.
Any incorrect identification of an image is not the responsibility of the
Ruth Lilly Special Collections and Archives. For questions concerning mushrooms,
their identification, or their cultivation, we recommend the following sites be
