George Bror BOVING Memorial Prize in Botany

A $650 prize has been endowed by Denise M. Fiala in memory of her father, George Bror Boving, for an outstanding student in Botany. A native of Sweden and a McGill graduate (B.S.A.1916), George Boving joined UBC's Agronomy Extension Department in 1918. His examination results in Botany as an undergraduate reflected his life-long love of this subject and, from 1949 until his retirement, he served as head gardener at UBC's Botanical Garden. The award is made on the recommendation of the Department of Botany.
