Beloved ASEV member and Michigan State University
Horticulture Professor, Dr. Gordon Stanley Howell, Jr., was laid
to rest in August. According to
his obituary, Dr. Howell “did not believe that one had to be
boring in order to be serious.”
Dr. Howell was an ASEV member since 1970, and received the
Honorary Research Lecturer in 1999 and the Merit Award in 2007.
As a viticulturist, he shaped winemaking and grapegrowing
techniques used in Michigan that have become elemental to the
industry. The impact of his research efforts is seen by the
dramatic shift of the types of grapes used in Michigan four
decades ago compared to today. Dr. Howell’s work opened the door
to new understandings in climate and grapegrowing, maximizing the
production of high-quality grapes.
