MNRS/Joseph & Jean Buckwalter Grant

The MNRS/Joseph & Jean Buckwalter Grant supports the research development of budding scholars in the Midwest Region, especially those with interests in cancer and depression.
Dr. Joseph Addison Buckwalter III was a former faculty member of the University of Iowa (U of I) College of Medicine, and at the time of his death he was an Emeritus Professor of Surgery at the University of North Carolina. He was instrumental in establishing the Iowa statewide cancer registry and in developing a program for treatment of patients with diseases of the thyroid gland. He conducted research in a variety of areas and in particular the genetically determined patterns of the incidence of gastric and duodenal ulcers and carcinoma of the stomach. Following his retirement from clinical practice, Dr. Buckwalter continued to teach and serve on committees for UNC. He regularly contributed editorials to local newspapers and served as a volunteer and leader for a variety of community programs, including Habitat for Humanity, Dispute Settlement Center, Freedom House, North Carolina Chapter of the Hemlock Society, and the YMCA. 

 Jean Buckwalter was married to Dr. Buckwalter and was a graduate of the University of Northern Iowa.  She was an organizational wizard who worked in advertising and marketing and became secretary to the Chairman of the U of I, Department of Surgery. In Chapel Hill, Jean did volunteer work with various non profits including United Way, Presbyterian Women, Meals on Wheels, and Inter-Faith Council. Jean was a strong, intelligent, curious woman who held people to high standards, yet was insightful and compassionate. Her interests included bridge, travel, reading and public policy. Her most important quality was an indomitable, confident spirit that could not be broken through personal health challenges and misfortunes. She created a strong sense of family and assisted them in achieving their full potential in life as mother/stepmother to 6 children, 13 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.

This  grant was made possible through a bequest from the estate of Dr. Joseph and Jean Buckwalter to their son and daughter-in-law, Jody and Kitty Buckwalter.
