College of Arts & Letters Establishes Endowment to Honor ISU Emeritus Professor Ron Hatzenbuehler
The College of Arts & Letters has established a scholarship endowment to honor emeritus professor of history Ronald Hatzenbuehler.
Hatzenbuehler taught early North American history at ISU from 1972 to 2013 and has written three books about the nation’s early history. He has served on the advisory boards for the Idaho State University Press, ISU’s magazine “Rendezvous” and for the Idaho State Historical Society magazine “Idaho Yesterdays.” He also served as chair for the history department, as well as an associate dean for the College of Arts & Letters.
Hatzenbuehler received numerous awards for teaching including ISU’s Distinguished Teacher award in 1994 and the Idaho Humanities Council’s Outstanding Achievement in the Humanities Award in 2008.
The Ronald Hatzenbuehler Scholarship Endowment will help an early college student who is pursuing a degree in the social sciences or history every year.
“We are honored that so many people stepped in and helped the endowment reach its goal,” said Dean Kandi Turley-Ames. “It shows how great of a teacher and mentor Ron was and continues to be.”
The College will honor Hatzenbuehler and celebrate his endowment on September 30 at noon on ISU’s Frazier Hall Patio.
