George Ledyard Stebbins

  • Otto T. Solbrig


george ledyard stebbins was born on January 6, 1906, in the town of Lawrence, New York. He attended Harvard University, where he obtained an A.B. degree in 1928, an A.M. the same year, and a Ph.D. in biology in 1931. At Harvard he worked first with A. L. Fernald on the taxonomy of grasses and the Compositae and then with E. C. Jeffrey, with whom he did his thesis work on the cytology, taxonomy, and evolution of the American species of the genus Antennaria.
