Ruth O. Johnson Memorial Award
Born in 1909, Ruth O. Johnson attended The University of Iowa and received a B.A. degree in commerce and science in 1934. She married her husband, Albert, and moved to Cedar Falls, Iowa, where she worked as a homemaker until her death in 1989.
A gift from Ruth’s estate established the Ruth O. Johnson Memorial Fund, which helps support medical students enrolled in the University where she got her start.
Ruth’s generosity will provide opportunities for generations of UI students to fulfill their educational dreams, just as she did.
Congratulations on receiving the Ruth O. Johnson Memorial Award
