June Downey Scholarship

June Downey
June Etta Downey (1875-1932) was an American Psychologist who studied personality and handwriting. She was the first woman in the United State to chair a department at a university. She wrote 7 books and over 70 articles during her life-time. As if her scholarly work wasn't enough, she also wrote poetry and wrote the University of Wyoming alma mater. She was a true pioneer for women in science and the arts.  The Downey scholarship was established to honor June Downey and to support the scholarship of women in the Psychology Department.
