Dr. Russ and Dolores Gorman Faculty Scholar

Dec. 31, 2011

The Dr. Russ and Dolores Gorman Faculty Scholar Fund honors the legacy of Dr. Russell Gorman, who was chair of the Health, Physical Education and Recreation departments at the University of Nebraska, Mankato State University (Minnesota), and Illinois State University. Dr. Gorman resided in Corvallis with his wife of more than 65 years, Dolores, until his death in January 2015.

The endowment fund was established by the Gormans' son, integrative biology alumnus Donald T. "Rusty" Gorman ('77) and his wife, Ruth, of Washington, D.C., and Houston, Texas. The couple has long supported the College of Science at Oregon State. Rusty Gorman served on the college's Board of Visitors from 2008 to 2012 and was named an Alumni Fellow in 2009 by the OSU Alumni Association.

The three-year rotating award recognizes faculty who bring distinction to the College of Science, connect with industry, and have a strong record of innovative research with practical impact.
