Table of contents What's This?
The George A. Zentmyer papers is a collection of newsletters, monographs, and magazines related to UC Riverside professor emeritus George A. Zentmyer's research on phytophtoras, which are a genus of plant-damaging molds that can cause damage to crops and natural ecosystems. The collection also includes obituaties for Zentmyer, and a booklet from his funeral service in 2003.
George Aubrey Zentmyer was born in North Platte, Nebraska on August 9, 1913. He earned a bachelor's degree in botany from the University of California, Los Angeles, followed by a master's and doctoral degree in plant pathology from the University of California, Berkeley. In 1944 he moved to Riverside to work at the Citrus Experiment Station, and later became one of the first faculty members at the University of California, Riverside.
