Botanist. Born in Sauquoit, New York, he is considered the most important authority of American botany in the 19th Century. He was instrumental in unifying the taxonomic knowledge of the plants and his book "Gray's Manual" which has gone through a number of editions with botanical illustrations, still remains a standard in the field. In 1984, the Asa Gray Award was to honor a living botanist for career achievements.
