ate the fame of an American who
little realized that his name would
become associated with one of the
symbols of the Yuletide. For Joel
R. Poinsett had so many other
claims to distinction that it seems
curious he is best remembered be
cause a flower bears his name!
Born in South Carolina in 1779, he
studied both medicine and military
science abroad but his father in
duced him to abandon his intention
of entering the army and to be
come a student of law. Poor health
forced him to give that up and he
asked President Madison for a com
mission in the army. He was about
to be appointed quartermaster-gen
eral when the secretary of war ob
Instead he was sent on a dip
lomatic mission to South America
where he mixed in the politics of
Chile, and fomented revolution un
til he became known as “the
scourge of the American continent’’
and was recalled. Next he was sent
to Mexico. Always interested in
botany, he brought back from that
country the flower which was given
the scientific name of “Poinsettia
Just as he had been a stormy
petrel in international politics, so
he was a disturbing element in the
politics of his native land. During
the Nullification controversy in
South Carolina he organized and led
the Unionist forces. By doing
that he won the esteem of the nation
al government and President Van
Buren made him secretary of war.
Poinsett improved and enlarged
the army, organized a general staff,
built up the artillery, directed the
Seminole war and managed the re
moval of some 40,000 Indians to In
dian Territory. In the midst of this
activity his scientific interests were
not neglected. He experimented
with scientific agriculture, sent out
the Wilkes expedition into the Ant
arctic and was largely instrumental
in founding the National Institute
for the Promotion of Science and
the Useful Arts which later was
merged with the Smithsonian Insti
tution. His busy career came to an
end in 1851 while he was living in
retirement as a plantation owner in
his native state.
