Wilder Medal in Pomology Winner — Pat Moore
I am delighted to announce that our own Dr. Pat Moore was awarded the prestigious Wilder Medal by the American Pomological Society for his contributions to fruit breeding. The Wilder Medal award was established in 1873 by the American Pomological Society and is conferred on individuals or organizations which have rendered outstanding service to horticulture in the broad area of pomology. Special consideration is given to work relating to the origination and introduction of meritorious varieties of fruit. This is the highest honor (a career award) that is bestowed by this society.
