Thomas Volney Munson (1843-1913), the internationally known horticulturist from Denison, Texas developed over 300 varieties of new grape varieties specifically for the American South and Southwest. He is perhaps best known for his work in fighting the phylloxera epidemic of the late nineteenth century, which nearly wiped out the world’s vineyards. His solution – grafting Vitis vinifera onto certain resistant native rootstocks from Texas – earned him the Chevalier du Mérite Agricole in the French Legion of Honor and numerous accolades from around the world. Munson belonged to and was honored by a number of viticultural and scientific associations and was considered a leader in the new scientific movement of the time for his cutting-edge work in breeding plant varieties, some of which are still important in modern viticulture and research.
