The Hartzog Fund

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 Professorship 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 the educational activities of the department.

The Fund allows the department to sponsor two annual activities and one fellow award: the Hartzog Lecture Series in Park and Conservation Area Management and The Hartzog Awards. The Hartzog Doctoral Fellowship was implemented in 2005 to support graduate students doing research in parks associated with the National Park Service.

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, the Fund has initiated six awards to recognize exemplary leadership in addressing environmental issues and concerns. The Lecture is co-sponsored by Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism Management, College of Health, Education and Human Development and The Strom Thurmond Institute. Below is a list of the awards and the criteria for these awards.

Please help us promote excellence in resource management and conservation by making your donation to Clemson University Foundation — Hartzog Fund, on line at or by mail to:  Development, 110 Daniel Drive, Clemson, SC 29631-1520
