The George B. Hartzog, Jr. Awards and Lecture Series

 


George B. Hartzog, Jr.

The Hartzog Fund was conceived in 1978 when colleague William C. Everhart and his wife, Mary, sought to honor the man who had meant so much to them and to the park movement in the United States. Everhart, after serving as Alumni Visiting Professor at Clemson in 1978, chose to honor Hartzog by presenting a financial gift to the Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism Management in Hartzog's name. The Everharts' gift, along with donations from foundations, associates and friends, is used to promote departmental educational activities.
The Fund sponsors two annual activities and one fellow award. The Hartzog Lecture Series in Park and Conservation Area Management was developed to feature leading figures in the field of conservation. In addition to the Hartzog Lecture Series, Clemson University, through the auspices of the Fund, has initiated six awards that are presented at the annual Hartzog Awards Program to recognize exemplary leadership in addressing environmental issues and concerns. The Hartzog Fellow was implemented in 2003 and supports a graduate student doing research in parks associated with the National Park Service.
