Happy Birthday 2 Ya “Frederick D. Patterson” Founder of United Negro College Fund

Submitted by on Tuesday, 10 October 2017No Comment

Frederick Douglass Patterson, born October 10, 1901, is best known as the third President of Tuskegee Institute, and founder of the  United Negro College Fund.

 

At Tuskegee Institute, President Patterson was responsible for transforming the Institute into a full-fledged university with graduate programs that exist to this day. Over the course of his Presidency, he founded the School of Veterinary Medicine, the Commercial Dietetics program, and spearheaded the University’s engineering and commercial aviation programs. All of these programs uniquely situated African Americans and Tuskegee University in a position where they could provide highly skilled interns for prestigious internships in emerging fields.

 

In 1940, Patterson founded the George Washington Carver Foundation, a non-profit organization that offered scientific research grants to African-American students. In 1944, he founded the United Negro College Fund, which continues to raise funding for historically black colleges and universities—including Tuskegee University. (via Biography)
