Born in East Falls Church, Virginia on March 27, 1908, Lucretia Breazeale
moved to Arizona with her family in 1920 when her father accepted a position
at the Sacaton USDA Experiment Station on the Pima Indian Reservation. In
1922, the Breazeales moved to Tucson where Lucretia finished grammar school,
graduated from high school and attended the University of Arizona. She
majored in botany and minored in art, becoming a botanical laboratory assistant. Even
as a college student, her prowess in botanical illustrating helped other
students to understand the field of view in their microscopes. She
graduated with a B.S. in botany in 1932.
