Highlights

Professor of Plant Pathology, UC Davis
1925-1996
"The motivation for his research was based as much on helping growers as on making some outstanding scientific discovery. His impact on California agriculture was well stated recently by an almond grower: 'He spoke the farmer's language and his philosophy was: "How can I save money for the growers and at the same time increase production?" In all his work, that's what stands out.'"

Professor of Pomology, UC Davis
1897-1985
"He was . . . a pragmatist who had the facility of making the physiology principles underlying fruit-tree growth understood in terms of orchard practice. In research his primary interest was in orchard soil fertility and soil management. The results of his research, while helping to define principles basic to proper use of fertilizers, cover crops, and cultivation in orchards, were readily understood and applied by growers."

Professor of Physics, UC Davis
1904-1984
"During his ten-year chairmanship the Department grew vigorously from three faculty to about a dozen. In 1956 came the first publication from the high-precision, beta-ray spectrometer built in the Physics Department, followed in 1958 by the first research grant from the AEC for research with that spectrometer. The following year saw the grant expanded to include construction of the 22-inch cyclotron, designed and built within the Department."

Professor of Philosophy, UC Davis
1913-1982

"Arthur Child was a man who believed that repetition is unnecessary if one has been clear in the first place . . . he began to develop his interest in the philosophy of history . . . His appointment at Davis allowed him to give fuller attention to his longstanding interest in aesthetics and the arts. He also developed courses in ethics and the philosophy of religion."

Professor of Pomology, UC Davis
1890-1968

"His interest in the effect of climate on fruit production led him to establish a network of thermograph stations in California's main fruit producing areas. The data from these led to a better understanding of many temperature-dependent growth phenomena in fruit plants . . . Several long-term projects developed from this network of climate stations."
