Number 7 - Name That Botanist

Our next American botanist (1857-1945) sat for this portrait on the occasion of his 1880 graduation from Cornell University. His career continued as the first professor of botany at the University of Wisconsin (1885), the first Director of the Missouri Botanical Garden (1889), and professor at the University of Illinois (1912). He was one of the participants on the 1899 Harriman Alaska expedition.
