Author: Arthur H. Holmgren,

Arthur H. Holmgren (1912-1992), one of the five principal authors of Intermountain Flora, was Professor of Botany at Utah State University from 1943 until his retirement in 1978. Prior to that, he worked for the Desert Range Experiment Station near Milford, Utah (1936-1937), served as Chief- of-Party of the Range and Economic Survey in Elko County, Nevada (1937-1941), and worked at the Squaw Butte Experiment Station in Harney County, Oregon (1941-1943). His major contribution to Intermountain Flora was the large and economically important grass family, Poaceae, which he co-authored with Noel H. Holmgren. He played the violin in the University of Utah and Utah State University symphonies and served for many years as a leader in the Cache Valley Civic Music Association and Utah State's Lyceum Committee. He was an avid gardener, growing many native species and unusual horticultural varieties. Honors received include: Outstanding Educator in America (1972); Robin's Award for Professor of the Year (1975); Faculty Honors Lecture (1977); special award of merit by the State Arboretum of Utah, University of Utah (1983); and Jim Bridger Award for conservation achievement (1988). Many botany, agriculture, and forestry students, who gained lasting knowledge and appreciation of plants from his lectures, went on to higher degrees and fill prominent positions in universities and for government agencies, such as the National Park Service, U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, USDA, and others.
