Biographical Note

Marie Louise Lavallard was born on July 13, 1912 in Brooklyn, New York, to Egmont W. and Louise C. Koch Froehlich. She was a pioneer among women in science having earned both a bachelor’s and a master’s degrees in Plant Physiology from Cornell University in 1932 and 1933 respectively. She was also a staunch and selfless community volunteer, mentor, generous benefactor, and ardent world traveler.

Lavallard married John Albert Lavallard in 1936. The couple did not have children. She began her academic career at the University of Vermont in 1936. In 1946, Lavallard came to the University of Arkansas’s College of Agriculture where she had a thirty-six-year professional career that included, among others, Chairmanship of the Department of Agricultural Communications and founding of the Arkansas Farm Research Journal. She was also Adjunct Professor at the Pan-American Agriculture College in Honduras. Lavallard retired in 1981.

Lavallard was an active member of Gamma Sigma Delta, a national agriculture honor society. She was chapter president 1972-1973 and Chapter Historian 1980-1994. In 1950, Lavallard joined the Foundation for the International Exchange of Students (FIES) at the University of Arkansas and served as recording secretary from 1959-2000, vice-president in 1967 and 1997, and president in 2000. She also wrote an annual FIES newsletter from 1956 to 2006. For her work with FIES, Lavallard received the Millennium International Volunteer Award given by the Department of State. In 1995, the Marie and John Lavallard International Scholarship was established to honor the couple for their lifelong commitment to FIES. The Scholarship was fully endowed by the University of Arkansas in 2005. Lavallard received several other awards for her outstanding volunteer activities such as the Fayetteville Public Schools Outstanding Volunteer of the Year award, the J. C.
