Wallace Martin Presented with SOA Award
Professor Wallace Martin was presented with a Faculty Certificate of Appreciation at the Society of Alumni Fall Workshop on Friday, September 7, 2012. The award was presented by Robert Lambeth ’71, chair of the Society of Alumni’s Awards Committee.
Martin, the Stephen H. Watts Professor of Biology at Randolph-Macon College, joined the faculty in 1971 and was named chair of the biology department in 1974. He is considered an expert in the field of mycology, a sub-discipline of microbiology that deals with the study of fungi. He has conducted groundbreaking research on saprophytic fungi as well as parasitic species important in the natural control of mosquitos, midges and blackflies. Martin earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology and his Ph.D. in Botany from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
At a retirement luncheon earlier this year, Biology Professor Chas. Gowan lauded Martin by saying, “Undergraduate research is dear to his heart and he has mentored dozens of students. His real legacy is in the form of all those students and all the hours of research.”
Randolph-Macon College thanks Wallace for the positive impact he has had on countless students, and for his unflagging service to the college.
