David A. Woolhiser

A gentle-giant pioneer of hydrological modeling. 

After graduating cum laude in 1955 from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, with BS degrees in Agricultural Engineering and Civil Engineering, David A. Woolhiser went on to a highly distinguished career as hydrologist and research hydraulic engineer. Along the way, he compiled an extensive record of research and publications which document his many pioneering contributions to the science of hydrology and agriculture, as they intersect in areas of water quantity and quality management in upland watersheds. David Woolhiser has received world-wide recognition as an outstanding scientist and engineer for this work. His selection for the American Geophysical Union Robert E. Horton Award in 1983, his election as Fellow in the American Geophysical Union in 1986 attest to his stature in the field as scientist and engineer. His induction in the National Academy of Engineering in 1990 is perhaps one of his most fitting accomplishments. His many other commendations and recognitions are annotated in his CV.
