Michael J Lewis Endowment

For more than 30 years, from 1962, Professor Michael J. Lewis led the UC Davis Brewing Science curriculum. To recognize Dr. Lewis, the UC Davis Department of Food Science and Technology created an endowed fund, named in his honor, and dedicated to supporting UC Davis brewing science. When Anheuser- Busch gave $30,000 to ‘‘support brewing science students,’’ Charlie Bamforth, Anheuser-Busch Endowed Professor of Malting and Brewing Science suggested that this was an opportunity to honor Dr. Lewis and endow a fund that will help students in perpetuity. ‘‘I thought an endowment would be an appropriate way to recognize the contributions Professor Lewis made to the education of students,’’ said Bamforth. ‘‘It also gives his former students an opportunity to thank Dr. Lewis through a gift to the fund.’’ For questions about this program, or giving to Food Science and Technology, contact Melissa Haworth at mdhaworth@ucdavis.edu or (530) 754-8562.
