William C. Darrah was, above all, a paleobotanist by both inclination and training. His life and career exemplified an enthusiastic search for knowledge, which was fostered by an unflagging interest in the world around him. His creativity crossed over into several diverse fields, including the history of geology and photography. He will be long remembered for his startling paleobotanical discoveries in the 1930s, his 1969 monographic work on late Carboniferous floras, and his role as an educator and promoter of paleobotany.
