Mary Heisdorf Scholarship
The Mary G. Heisdorf Memorial Scholarship established by Arthur J. Heisdorf in memory of his first wife Mary G. Heisdorf. Mary was co-founder of Heisdorf & Nelson Farms in Kirkland, Washington, a poultry breeding enterprise. Mary was an integral part of their business, helping Art first on the farm and in the hatchery, then with the financial end of the business, and finally graciously receiving visitors from around the world who became distributors of their products. Art attended UW-Madison and received his B.S. in 1936. Art was one of the first poultry breeders to use a revolutionary new technique to select the pure line families of chicks based on the performance of their commercial offspring.
Awarded to CALS undergraduates and graduate students in Poultry Science. The Department of Animal Science nominates students for this award.
