Frances Stribic

Frances Stribic was a member of the Mathematics faculty from 1926 until she retired in 1965. Finding a need for someone to teach statistics, she prepared herself in that subject and not only taught it for a number of years but also did research applications jointly with psychology Professor Dorothy (Happy) Martin. Professor Stribic was an outstanding teacher, well respected by her students and colleagues. In 1990 her friend Happy Martin established the Stribic Scholarship awarded each year to a female graduate student chosen by the faculty for excellence in mathematics scholarship.
