Michael Roland Shaw Moore (January 9, 1941 – February 20, 2009)

From the Southwest School of Botanical Medicine website:

Michael Moore was one of the great teachers and shapers of the revival of American Herbalism in the second half of the 20th century. His sense of humor and storytelling prowess were legendary. The encyclopedic knowledge of plants that he held - after nearly 40 years spent as a scholar, herb trader and picker, ethnobotanist, clinician, teacher, and writer -was unmatched. He believed in whole plant medicines, promoted the use and understanding of local botanicals, and urged all his students to become proficient herbalists capable of understanding, recognizing, making and employing their own medicines.

Michael's very valuable website that he maintained is archived and available here: http://swsbm.com/HOMEPAGE/HomePage.html
