Title: William Burke Critchfield

Author: Millar, Connie;

Date: 1990

Source: Fremontia 18(4): 65-67

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: William B. Critchfield died July 11, 1989. He left a legacy unparalleled in forest genetics. Bill made major contributions to understanding genetic variation, hybridization, growth and development, biogeography, paleobotany, systematics, and taxonomy of forest trees, especially pines. In each of these fields, Bill's pioneering work earned him the position of world authority. These studies were mainly spinoffs from groundwork Bill was meticulously laying for his primary interest: unraveling the evolutionary history of conifers. And it is his evolutionary syntheses that best reveal Bill's breadth as geneticist and scholar.
