Henry M. Morris (1918-2006) is arguably the most influential young-earth creationist of the 20th century. By combining scientific credentials with biblical arguments on the origin of life, Henry Morris ignited a movement more than 40 years ago that earned him the label “the father of modern creationism.”

Morris received his B.Sc. in civil engineering from Rice University (1939), and earned a master's degree in hydraulics (1948) and a Ph.D. in hydraulic engineering (1950), both from the University of Minnesota. He began a college teaching carrer in 1951 and eventually served as professor of hydraulic engineering and civil engineering department head at the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University until 1969.

Morris teamed with Old Testament scholar John C. Whitcomb in writing the seminal The Genesis Flood, first published in 1961. Either a source of controversy or inspiration, depending on one's perspective, it attempted to scientifically explain the theory of divine creation. It also paved the way for Dr. Morris to help found what is now San Diego Christian College in El Cajon in 1970 and to launch the Institute for Creation Research in Santee.
