MICHIGAN BOTANICAL CLUB
Isobel Dickinson Memorial Award
Isobel Adkins Dickinson (1921-1993) was a founding member of the Red Cedar Chapter of the Michigan Botanical Club. She served as chapter treasurer from 1973 - 1993, chapter secretary from 1989 - 1993 and Director-at-Large from 1980 - 1993. She is fondly remembered by all, and the loss of her battle with cancer is deeply felt to this day. This award has been established in her memory.
