Wilfrid SADLER Prize in Dairying

A prize of $250 has been endowed as a memorial to the late Professor Wilfrid Sadler, Head of the Department of Dairying for 15 years, 1918-1933. He was a distinguished scientist and lecturer who made significant contributions to our knowledge of the lactic acid bacteria and initiated studies which have led to advances in our understanding of the role of micro-organisms in the renewable primary resource industries of the province. It is awarded to the fourth year student in Food Science with the highest aggregate standing in the subjects of the third and fourth years, including graduating thesis. This prize is one of a series of awards designated as the Agricultural Sciences Founding Faculty Prizes, established to honour the men who were responsible for the organization and development of the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences at the University of British Columbia. On the occasion of the sixtieth anniversary of the appointment of Leonard S. Klinck as Dean of the Faculty of Agriculture, May 11, 1974, these prizes were established by Dean Emeritus Blythe Eagles and Mrs. Eagles and subsequently endowed by members of the Sigma Tau Upsilon Agricultural Fraternity.
