"Edward Lewis"

This is one of Gilbert N. Lewis' two sons, also known as "Ted." He passed away in 2012 (cf http://news.rice.edu/2012/08/03/rice-remembers-professor-emeritus-of-chemistry-ted-lewis/)

"Edward S. Lewis, son of G. N. Lewis, received his undergraduate education at the University of California, Berkeley, and then earned his Ph.D. at Harvard under the supervision of Paul D. Bartlett. He joined the chemistry faculty at Rice in 1947, where he remained until his retirement in 1990. Professor Lewis spent a year at Oxford as a Guggenheim fellow in 1967-1968."
