Morgan, William Wilson (1906–1994)
After three years of undergraduate study at Washington and Lee University, Morgan joined the staff of the Yerkes Observatory, where he spent his entire career, including three years as director. While at Yerkes he earned bachelor's and doctoral degrees at the University of Chicago. Eschewing theory, his research focused on morphology – the classification of objects by their form and structure.
