Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, he was educated at Harvard University, where he earned a Ph.D. in 1917. After service in Europe during World War I, he taught botany at the State College of Washington (now Washington State University) (1920-1929), where also became the curator of its herbarium. In 1929, he joined the faculty of the University of Hawai i, where he served as longtime chair of the botany department (1929-1940, 1943-1954), then as director of the university's Lyon Arboretum. The St. John Plant Science Laboratory building on the M noa campus, which houses the botany department, is named after him.show more
