D. degrees in botany from the University of Missouri; his initial interests were in flowering plants, but he soon became fascinated with blue-green algae, and made contributions to both disciplines in his earliest publications (1930-1936); his later papers and books dealt almost exclusively with blue-green algae, which he studied in the field, from cultures, and in the herbarium; after completing his degree programme, he remained at the University of Missouri as a herbarium assistant until 1935 when he accepted an invitation from the Brazilian government to assist as a botanist in a fish culture programme; in 1938 he won a Seessel fellowship to study botany at Yale University; after two years at Yale, he was appointed Curator of the Cryptogamic Herbarium at the Chicago Field Museum of Natural History, a post he held for 20 years; he became a research associate at New Mexico Highlands University in 1958 and the next year professor of botany at the University of Arizona; in 1961 he joined the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia as a research fellow and curator of the Algal Herbarium; for the next 21 years, he worked on the remaining four volumes of his monograph series on the blue-green algae; shortly before his death, he also completed a summary of the family Myxophyceae)
