Highlights

Professor of English, UC Davis
1936-2000
"Arthur McGuinness was deeply involved in the improvement of undergraduate education on the Davis campus. His most enduring legacy will be the Integrated Studies Program, which began in 1968 as a living-learning program for freshmen with faculty teaching a cross-disciplinary curriculum . . . In a deeply moving memorial service for Arthur, alumni of the Program for the last thirty years bore witness to its lasting impact on their lives."

Professor of History, UC Davis
1915-2000
"Jackson's voluminous research made an enormous contribution to Western U.S. history. He entered the field at a time when it was widely believed to be moribund and of little relevance. One of a generation of scholars to come of age during World War II and the early Cold War, his scholarship turned many of the assumptions in the field--and about the field--on their heads. Through five decades of research and publication, Turpie continually revealed how the West of supposed “rugged individualists” and small property owners was in fact underwritten by federal subsidies and international capital."

Professor of Evolution and Ecology, UC Davis
1906-2000
"his major influence was as a Professor of Genetics . . . His brilliant book, Variation and Evolution in Plants, published in 1950, was the first to bring genetic and populational points of view to the study of plant evolution. The book served to bring plants into the so-called Modern Synthesis, then
being formulated, that combined genetics, biogeography and paleontology with Darwinian thinking and became the foundation for our present understanding of evolution."

John B. Powers
Professor of Electrical Engineering, UC Davis and UC Los Angeles
Associate Dean of Research and Graduate Studies in the College of Engineering, UC Davis
1908-1993


"In 1958 he was named, by the students, most outstanding engineering professor of the year. In the engineering-student newsletter, the editor wrote of Powers, 'Not only is he an eminent engineer and an instructor capable of stimulating independent thought, but he also demonstrates a deep and active concern for student problems.'"

Edward B. Roessler
Professor of Mathematics, UC Davis
1902-1993


"[Ed] authored several textbooks, including Problems in Agricultural Mathematics; Principles of Sensory Evaluation of Food, co-authored with Amerine and Rose Maire Pangborn; and Introduction to Probability and Statistics, co-authored with Henry L. Adler. The last, published in 1960, became one of the most widely adopted introductory texts in statistics in the United States, going through six editions. Few among us would
claim intellectual diversity on a front as broad as one spanning statistics and the sensory evaluation of food and wine."

Professor of Food Science and Technology and Sensory Scientist, UC Davis
1932-1990
"Rose Marie Pangborn was internationally known as a pioneer in the field of sensory analysis of food attributes . . . She published over 180 scientific articles, including 12 in 1989, and co-authored three textbooks. One, Principles of Sensory Evaluation . . . served as the "bible" for sensory course work and research for over 20 years."

Professor of Entomology and Chairman of Environmental Toxicology Department, UC Davis
1910-1980
"Student guidance and welfare, and excellence in instruction were always paramount with Dr. Stafford. His accessibility and his genuine concern with student problems and goals, while graduate student adviser, were inspirational to his colleagues and contributed to the acceptance of student advising as a worthy and desirable academic activity."

Professor of Water Science, UC Davis
1886-1977
"Dr. Veihmeyer studied such problems as the availability of soil moisture to plants, movement of water in soil, and cultivation effects on moisture losses from the soil. Those pioneering studies developed new understanding of plant-soil-water relations, including the now well-known concepts of field capacity and permanent wilting percentage. His attention to the practical problems of research led to the development of widely used devices, such as the Veihmeyer soil-sampling tube."

Professor of Dairy Science, UC Davis
1881-1969
"The Division of Dairy Industry under his leadership expanded rapidly and had an impact on the industry. Roadhouse deserves much of the credit for the close relations that developed between the University and the dairy industry. Perhaps more than any other individual, Roadhouse was the dominant figure in establishing and teaching hygienic methods and standards for the dairy industry and, by example, for the entire food industry of California. This was his major contribution, and the public is in his debt for it."
