The Enology Research Endowment Fund was established in honor of four impressive V&E faculty members upon their retirement in 1992. The "Big Four" of V&E included: George Cooke, Vernon Singleton, Cornelius Ough, and Ralph Kunkee. Their specialties embraced every aspect of the world of V&E, respectivley they were: a plant pathologist, a chemist, a fermentation specialist, and a microbiologist. Faculty, staff, and industry leaders donated to this fund to honor the talent that had served so long and with such distinction.
