The University of North Carolina Herbarium has only a few of I.F. Lewis' botanical specimens. With approximately 10% of NCU's collection databased, we have found five specimens ca. 1901, collected near the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill campus, probably when he was an undergraduate. We have found two specimens collected in 1944 in Virginia, one from the Mountain Lake Biological Station and one from the University of Virginia campus in Charlottesville. As more of NCU's collection is catalogued, no doubt we will find additional specimens collected by I.F. Lewis.

I.F. Lewis was one of four children born to Richard Henry Lewis (1850-1926), a physician, and Cornelia Viola Battle (1857-1886), daughter of UNC President Kemp Plummer Battle. Upon Cornelia's death, Richard Lewis married Mary Long Gordon of Charlottesville, Va. Their only daughter was newswoman and feminist Nell (Cornelia) Battle Lewis (1893-1956).

I. F. Lewis graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with an A.B. degree in 1902. In 1903 he completed his S.M. with a minor in botany at UNC-Chapel Hill. He earned his Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins in 1908 with his thesis on an alga, "The life history of Griffithsia Bornetiana." While living in Baltimore, he was a member of the Baltimore Field Naturalist Club.

Lewis spent his academic career at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, and died there in 1964.
