He was the younger brother of the Prussian minister, philosopher, and linguist Wilhelm von Humboldt. Humboldt's quantitative work on botanical geography laid the foundation for the field of biogeography. Humboldt's advocacy of long-term systematic geophysical measurement laid the foundation for modern geomagnetic and meteorological monitoring. He is honored throughout Nevada (Humboldt River, Humboldt County, Humboldt Range, Humboldt Sink). (Laguna Collection) State: Arizona City: Date: 1910 HWAC# 59599
