    Thomas Hogg (1820-1892) was born in England but his family emigrated to the United States almost immediately after his birth. His father, also Thomas, established a nursery in New York, later run by the younger Thomas’s brother James, a connection which was to prove useful later in his life. In 1862 Thomas, junior, was appointed a US Marshal and in the same year he went to Japan in that role, staying there until 1870, and returning there from 1873 to 1875. During these tours of duty he acquired and sent to his brother’s nursery a wide selection of plants including the first introductions, at least to the United States, of Hosta decorata, Stuartia pseudocamellia, Styrax obassia, Cercidiphyllum japonicum, Symplocos paniculata, Pueraria lobata, Cornus kousa and Magnolia hypoleuca.
