Leonard Richard Wilson is a pioneering American palynologist. He has contributed extensively through his teaching, research, and publications in palynology, paleobotany, limnology, glacial geology, archeology, and several other areas of geology and botany. His role as an educator has been outstanding from his early days at Coe College in 1934 to his long tenure at the University of Oklahoma, including assignments at several other academic institutions. Many of his students are leaders in palynology and related fields today. His contributions include one of the earliest applications of palynological technology to industrial needs, particularly in oil exploration and coal science.
