Highlights

Professor of Biochemistry, UC Davis
1920-1999
"The quality of his research earned him a Guggenheim Fellowship, which he spent at Harvard with Professor Frank Westheimer. This year (1955-1956) had a profound influence on Ingraham's research interests, and subsequently his research program concentrated on mechanistic studies of reactions of intermediary metabolism catalyzed by enzymes requiring thiamin pyrophosphate, pyridoxal phosphate, biotin, coenzyme A and the pyridine nucleotides."

Professor of Anthropology and Art, UC Davis
1921-1998
"His wheelchair never deterred him from visiting the most remote mountain village or attending conferences in out-of-the-way spots. Stories of Dan's indefatigability as a traveler are legion . . . He eschewed grand theory in favor of the collection of cultural materials, and his collections of folktales are a rich source of material for students of Africa and the Americas."

Professor of Anthropology, UC Davis
1926-1983
"His major contributions date from the period of the fifties and early sixties: the early use of quantitative methods in archaeology, the practice of archaeology as an anthropological enterprise, the pioneering consideration of environmental and ecological factors. These contributions help set the stage for the “new” archaeology; Baumhoff had, partly in collaboration with R. F. Heizer and partly on his own, first described and dated a number of the crucial diagnostic features of the archaeology of California and Great Basin."

Professor of Agricultural Economics, UC Davis
1906-1982
"An early first-hand acquaintance with farmers and their problems provided a perspective that Dr. Hedges retained throughout his career . . . His keen understanding of the value of all lines of research carried out in an agricultural experiment station imparted a recognizable quality and depth to his work as he systematically developed a long-range program in farm management for the University of California."

Professor of Chemistry, UC Davis
1901-1981
"His discipline, colleagues, and students were well served by Harold. His published writings included contributions in the diverse fields of mechanistic organic chemistry, solution chemistry, chemistry of herbicides, and biosynthesis as well as several patents on motor fuels and the preparation of higher chlorides of uranium that resulted from his industrial and government work."

Professor of Argonomy, UC Davis
1902-1974
"He was early placed in charge of the breeding programs on beams and corn, and from 1950 he concentrated on bean varietal development, genetics, and cultural practices. His work improved the quality and yield of bean varieties, established cultural guidelines for farmers, and contributed to basic knowledge of bean genetics."

Professor of Animal Science, UC Davis
1895-1972
"Professor Goss gained international renown for his mineral and vitamin studies in laboratory and large domestic animals, but more importantly, a host of graduate students, as well as his colleagues on the faculty, are in debt to him for his unflagging interest and helpfulness in the biochemical aspects of their researches. Finally, the warmth with which Professor Goss and Hilda welcomed undergraduate and graduate students into their home did much to foster the tradition of Davis as the friendly campus."

Professor of Horticulture/Agriculture, UC Davis, UC Berkeley, UC Riverside, and UC Los Angeles
1878-1970
"Dr. Chandler had an innate interest in the behavior of plants and a great appreciation of the beauties of nature. . . . He was recognized as dean and senior statesman of American horticulturists."
   
Photograph courtesy of University Archives, Special Collections, UC Davis General Library. Herbert Alexander Young
Professor of Chemistry and Dean of the College of Letters and Science, UC Davis
1906-1965
"In the words of Knowles A. Ryerson, a former head of the Davis campus, 'Herbert Young had a great heart, great ideals, great faith in himself, his university, and his country. There was something deep, fine, and bedrock in Herbert Young's natural goodness. We have all felt it.'"

Professor of Animal Husbandry, UC Davis
1884-1962
". . . Professor Regan made other substantial contributions to the dairy industry of California and the United States. He initiated some of the earliest research on the effects of environmental temperature and humidity on the physiology of the dairy cow, including the effects of these factors on the composition of her milk."
   
Photograph courtesy of University Archives, Special Collections, UC Davis General Library. Wilfred William Robbins
Professor of Botany, UC Davis
1884-1952
"Botany, for Dr. Robbins, was not a theoretical subject to be unsullied by practical applications. He believed that ultimately all real knowledge must somehow have its impact on the lives of men . . . He could best accomplish this by education, not only of college students but also of growers."
