Luther Burbank
b. 3-7-1849; Lancaster, Massachusetts
d. 4-11-1926; California

Luther Burbank, botanist, horticulturist and agricultural innovator, had as his objective to improve the quality of plants and thereby increase the world's food supply.

Burbank developed more than 800 strains and varieties of plants over a 55-year career that include the Shasta Daisy, the potato that McDonald's uses for french fries, and the poppy that is the California state flower.

Luther Burbank was not considered a “scientist” in the academic sense because he didn't keep careful records of observations.

"And to think of this great country in danger of being dominated by people ignorant enough to take a few ancient Babylonian legends as the canons of modern culture. Our scientific men are paying for their failure to speak out earlier. There is no use now talking evolution to these people. Their ears are stuffed with Genesis." Luther Burbank
