The Daniel E. Stuntz Memorial Foundation along with the Puget Sound Mycological Society has made the initial gift to begin an endowment fund at the University of Washington and the Burke Museum. This fund will support the fungal Herbarium collection and other mycology pursuits connected to the study and acquisition of this collection. As a collection exists for the study of the organisms represented by the specimens, it is our intention to keep alive the spirit of community outreach and creation of Mycologists begun at the University of Washington by Professor Daniel Elliot Stuntz and perpetrated by him for his 40 years as Professor of Mycology.
Funding a curator of the collection will be the immediate goal of the project with the ultimate goal being funding a full professorship of Mycology. The endowment will ensure the support for community and professional educational projects in Mycology in perpetuity. Mycology is intimately connected to the other scientific disciplines of forestry, botany, ecology, medicine, and the culinary arts. It is our goal to keep alive these connections by supporting the study of fungal systematics and the natural science of mushrooms as an essential part of the circle of life.
