Donald and Ruthanna Davidson Botany Research Scholarship

The Donald and Ruthanna Davidson Botany Research Scholarship was established in 2005 by Mr. and Mrs. Davidson. Mr. Davidson enjoyed teaching and research, sharing his love of plants with students and faculty and those in the community. He taught for 43 years, over 41 at what is now the University of Wisconsin-Superior. He was honored by his colleagues in 2010 when they named the University Herbarium after him. He worked with the Superior garden club with their Indianhead District Scholarship program and was pleased when the Wisconsin Garden Club Federation honored him with their Bronze award in 2007. Mr. Davidson passed away in February 2014.
