Henry Shoemaker Conard was a leading authority on bryophytes and water lilies, as well as an early advocate of environmental preservation. From 1906 to 1955, Professor Conard worked at Grinnell College in Grinnell, Iowa. In 1954, he became the first to receive the Eminent Ecologist Award from the Ecological Society of America, an award that has continued annually ever since. In 1969, Grinnell acquired a 365-acre plot of cropland and established the Conard Environmental Research Area, in recognition of the legacy of the longtime professor.
