"The Barbara A. McClintock Graduate Fund in Plant Science has been established to encourage and support the work of promising graduate students in the field of plant biology, with preference given to women. We hope you will join campaign initiator Robert Rabson, Professor Ronnie Coffman, alumni, friends of the college, and those concerned with world agricultural development in support of this important and timely project. The Barbara A. McClintock Graduate Fund will provide much needed student support at Cornell, but it will do more than that. It will honor the career of one of the college's most outstanding alumnae and continue McClintock's remarkable legacy of research and mentorship, memorializing her spirit, her work, and her genius."
