About the McCoy Award

Each year, the Herbert Newby McCoy Award is presented to recognize the most outstanding achievements in research by CCE graduate students. The Herbert Newby McCoy Award was established in 1965 by Mrs. Ethel Terry McCoy in honor of her husband, a distinguished Purdue alumnus. A native of Indiana, Herbert Newby McCoy studied chemistry at Purdue University where he received a B.S. degree in 1892 and a M.S. degree in 1893. His Ph.D. was earned at the University of Chicago in 1898. He died in 1945 in Los Angeles, California.
