ARS Science Hall of Fame
ARS Science Hall of Fame

navbar Browse the Hall Find a Member Home

The men and women who have been inducted into the ARS Science Hall of Fame represent a very special group of scientists—the best of the best.

You can browse the Hall to learn a little about the primary achievements of all the members. Or, to locate information on a specific member, click here. The ARS News & Events site contains a growing collection of video clips from interviews with Hall members. The newest clip is from a 2001 interview with soil scientist William E. Larson. Come back again, because we'll be adding more research details, links, videos—and members.

Every member of the Hall of Fame—

  • has produced a major impact on agricultural research—by solving a significant agricultural problem through research or providing outstanding leadership that significantly advanced agricultural research.
  • has made accomplishments that continue to be recognized by the agricultural research community.
  • possesses the character and record of achievement worthy of emulation by younger agricultural scientists.
  • has made achievements that were nationally or internationally recognized by peers in the scientific community.

Inductees to the Hall are selected by a panel of peers from ARS, other federal agencies and academia. Nominations can be made by any ARS employee. To be eligible for nomination, a scientist must be retired or eligible for retirement from ARS.

If you are in the Washington, D.C., area, you can stop in and visit the Hall of Fame. It's located in the historic Log Lodge, ARS National Visitor Center, Beltsville, Maryland. The Hall was inaugurated in 1986.
