The University of North Carolina Herbarium
has only a few of I.F. Lewis' botanical specimens. With approximately
10% of NCU's collection databased, we have found five specimens
ca. 1901, collected near the University of North Carolina at Chapel
Hill campus, probably when he was an undergraduate. We have found
two specimens collected in 1944 in Virginia, one from the Mountain
Lake Biological Station and one from the University of Virginia
campus in Charlottesville. As more of NCU's collection is catalogued,
no doubt we will find additional specimens collected by I.F. Lewis.
I.F. Lewis was one of four children born
to Richard Henry Lewis (1850-1926), a physician, and Cornelia
Viola Battle (1857-1886), daughter of UNC President Kemp Plummer
Battle. Upon Cornelia's death, Richard Lewis married Mary Long
Gordon of Charlottesville, Va. Their only daughter was newswoman
and feminist Nell (Cornelia) Battle Lewis (1893-1956).
I. F. Lewis graduated from the University
of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with an A.B. degree in 1902.
In 1903 he completed his S.M. with a minor in botany at UNC-Chapel
Hill. He earned his Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins in 1908 with his
thesis on an alga, "The life history of Griffithsia Bornetiana."
While living in Baltimore, he was a member of the Baltimore Field
Lewis spent his academic career at the University of Virginia
in Charlottesville, and died there in 1964.
