Memorial Book

The Animal Science Memorial Fund was established September 24, 1954 by the Regents of the University of California. The Fund was set up as an endowment with the income to be used for the advancement of the Department of Animal Science in teaching and research, and by the award of scholarships and grants-in-aid.

The Department has established a Memorial Book in order to properly recognize those who are memorialized. In addition, this rotating display of honorees was inaugurated in 1995.

Criteria for inclusion in the book and display are as follows:

  1. At least one donation must be received in the individual's name.
  2. This person should have made a significant contribution to the California animal industry or:
  3. This person should have been associated with the Department of Animal Science as faculty, staff or Cooperative Extension.
  4. Persons in whose memory a donation is received but who do not meet criteria 2 or 3 will be listed in the Memorial Book.

Spouses, or other family members of any of those included above, and for whom donations have been received who do not directly satisfy the above criteria, will be listed as having had a donation made in their memory.

 Memorial Photo

This picture, of Greg Skewis, Bill Weir, and Jim Meyer, was taken at the dedication of the William C. Weir Conference Room (2154 Meyer Hall) in 1995.

Greg Skewis painted the mural that adorns the south wall of the room. Professor Bill Weir was a former Professor of Animal Science, Dean of Students, and Chairman of Nutrition, in whose honor the room was named. Chancellor Emeritus Jim Meyer was the former Professor of Animal Science, Dean of the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, and Chancellor of the UC Davis campus, for whom Meyer Hall was named. You are invited to examine the mural and the conference room.
