Ecologist, Botanist. Known as E. Lucy Braun, her given name was Emma. A pioneer in the field of plant ecology, she graduated from the University of Cincinnati in 1910 and earned her PhD in 1914. Her research specialized in vascular plant floristics in deciduous forests. Best known for her book, "Deciduous Forests of Eastern North America (1950)," she authored over 180 works. Braun founded the Wildflower Preservation Society of North America in 1917. Braun vastly explored the deciduous forests of Eastern America with her sister, Annette Braun, an entomologist specializing in moths. She was a professor at the University of Cincinnati from 1923 to 1948. From 1933 to 1934, she became the first woman president of the Ohio Academy of Science and the first woman president of the Ecological Society of America in 1950. Braun was awarded the Mary Soper Pope medal in botany in 1952 and the Certificate of Merit by the Botanical Society of America in 1956. She was named to the Conservation Hall of Fame in 1971 and died that same year at her residence in Cincinnati when she was 81 years old. (bio by: K Guy)
