Lester E. Harris Jr.
An Army medic in the South Pacific during World War II, he came home with the idea of becoming a medical doctor. But, the pull of his love for nature was too strong. And so, after graduating from Washington Missionary College in Takoma Park, Md., he worked the rest of his life as a biology professor, including several years at Middlesex High School.
