Botanical explorer of China, Japan and Korea who travelled with a Sanderson whole-plate field camera and large numbers of glass plates. On expeditions for the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University he brought back vast numbers of plant specimens along with 2,488 glass plates of eastern Asia. Starting his expeditions for the English nursery firm Veitch & Sons he travelled to China in 1899 and enroute visited the Arnold Arboretum and from that point on he had a firm relationship with the institution making it his home from 1909 onwards. He became the "Keeper" of the Arnold Arboretum in 1927.
 
Wilson's photograph collection of approximately 7,700 images taken at the Arnold Arboretum, throughout New England, in Eastern Asia, and around the world remains an unexplored resource for the history of photography.
