In memory of Dr. Stanley Harris


Mr. Stanley Harris was a Wildlife professor at Humboldt State University for 33 years who left a great legacy upon his passing at the age of 91 on Dec. 27, 2019. Stanley helped build the HSU Wildlife department to being one of the best in the country, and continued his work with the department long after his official “retirement” in 1992. His influence extended far beyond the campus as an avid birder and in aiding in the creation of the Arcata Marsh. 


Stanley, along with his wife Lorene, who passed in 2012, were strong advocates of education and supporters of students. One way they did this was through endowing three scholarships in 2003 to support HSU Wildlife students: The Stanley W. Harris Scholarship and the Lorene J. Harris Scholarship for undergraduate students, and the Stanley W. and Lorene J. Harris Scholarship for graduate students.
