Abstract

Edgar Anderson (1897-1969), who spent most of his life at the Missouri Botanical Garden, serving as its director from 1954 to 1957, made many contributions to economic botany and ethnobotany. Using his book Plants, Man and Life as a starting point, I shall discuss several of these contributions and bring in a number of personal recollections.
