Denise Gaudreau, Research Associate at the Harvard Forest, passed away in May 1992 from the effects of progressive multiple sclerosis. Denise had degrees from Brown (S.B.) and Yale (Ph.D.) universities and came to Harvard University as a Charles Bullard Fellow on sabbatical leave from Southampton College on Long Island. Following her fellowship she became a permanent member of the Harvard Forest research staff, working on Late-Quaternary vegetation history of the northeastern United States and the relationship between topography, climate and plant migration.

In recognition of Denise’s scientific and academic accomplishments and her interest in the role of women in science, the American Quaternary Association (AMQUA) has established the Denise Gaudreau Award for Excellence in Quaternary Studies. The award will be given at AMQUA meetings to a female doctoral candidate working in any field of Quaternary studies in recognition of her scientific accomplishments and demonstration of original thinking.
