Historical NoteReturn to Top

Richard E. Juday was born in Madison, Wisconsin, on May 28, 1918. His father was a professor of limnology at the University of Wisconsin. Like his father, Juday studied limnology. He received his bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Harvard University in 1939 and his doctorate degree in organic chemistry from the University of Wisconsin in 1943. He came to Missoula in 1948 and was a University of Montana chemistry professor for 30 years specializing in limnology. He continued to be involved with the University until his death in 2002.

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

This collection contains Juday’s papers from when he was a student at Harvard and as a chemistry professor at The University of Montana.
