Ernest Henry Wilson (1876-1930) was the furthest traveled of all the Arnold Arboretum’s plant explorers of the early twentieth century. It is not an overstatement to credit Wilson with bringing Eastern Asian botany, history, and culture to widespread interest in western society.

Many thousands more Botanical and Cultural Images of Eastern Asia are available in our Visual Archives, along with the Papers of Ernest Henry Wilson, 1896-1952.
