Alice L. Diers Bacteriology Enrichment Fund

Placeholder image

Alice established this fund in 1983 to foster the quality of education and research within the microbiology degree program. 


Alice (1911-2000) received her BS in 1931 from WSU in Bacteriology. Growing up on a Palouse wheat farm, Alice’s mother was determined to send her to college. Alice’s independent spirit served her well as she worked in pathological labs across the Northwest, including Alaska; where she met her husband William.
