Purdue Prof Honored by WSU

PULLMAN, Wash. — Jack Albright, a member of the Purdue University faculty since 1959, was honored Thursday by Washington State University’s animal sciences department.

Albright, who earned a master’s of science degree in dairy science at WSU in 1954 and a doctorate in animal science at WSU in 1957, received the Distinguished Graduate Award in Science, Education and Technology.

The annual award is presented to graduates of the department who have distinguished themselves in the fields of scientific research, teaching, public service or extension work.

Albright’s work in research and teaching has resulted in better housing, animal facilities and management techniques for farm animals.

He has received many honors during his career, including the American Society of Animal Science Management Award and the American Dairy Science Association Dairy Management Research Award. He is a fellow of both of these societies as well as the American Association for Advancement of Science.
