Caption: Wanda K. Farr (1895-1983) US botanist. Farr was known for her discovery of the mechanism by which cellulose is formed in the walls of plant cells. Farr discovered that cellulose-manufacturing plastids exist in the protoplasm of the cell. She made the plastids visible in cotton cells by mounting the cells in a bath derived from the juices of the cotton plant.
