Carl Linnaeus.

Carl Linnaeus (23 May 1707 – 10 January 1778), also known after his ennoblement as Carl von Linné (Latin: Carolus Linnæus and Carolus a Linné), was a Swedish botanist, zoologist, and physician who formalized the binomial nomenclature, the modern system of naming organisms. He is known as the "father of modern taxonomy".

His system also included now less politically correct human racial taxonomical aspects.
