Summary

One of St. Louis's premier cultural institutions, the Missouri Botanical Garden has grown from the dream of businessman and philanthropist Henry Shaw to a National Historic Landmark and world-renowned center for science, conservation, education, and horticultural display. Enlisting the help of some of the most famous botanists of his time, Shaw planted and opened the garden to the public in 1859. The photographs in this book chronicle the dynamic history of the Missouri Botanical Garden and the men and women who have continued Shaw's legacy for over 150 years.
