The Gordon L. Palmer Memorial Scholarship


Gordon L. Palmer


Some time ago, our dear friend and avid reenactor Gordon Palmer passed away after battling a long and difficult illness. Gordon was a member of several USV units. What he really wanted to do was to portray the “surly cook”, which he accomplished to perfection. Just before his passing, he expressed the desire to establish a scholarship as a reward for the youth in our hobby. In lieu of flowers or other donations, the Palmer family has established a scholarship fund in Gordon’s name. As a result of these generous donations, a fund set aside for this purpose is now under the custodianship of the USV Treasury.

To facilitate the awarding of the scholarship, the same application and procedures as currently exist for the Keith Prohaska Memorial Scholarship will be used. All applications received will be considered for both scholarships. There is no need to apply twice – one application will serve the purpose. Awards will be made to two separate individuals selected from the pool of applications received. (Sorry, both scholarships will NOT be awarded to the same person.)
