The men and women who have been inducted into the ARS Science Hall of Fame represent a very special group of scientists—the best of the best. The most recent inductees (September 2009) are dairy scientist Max J. Paape, geneticist J. Neil Rutger and soil scientist B.A. Stewart.

If you are in the Washington, D.C., area, you can stop in and visit the Hall of Fame. It's located at USDA-ARS, George Washington Carver Center, 5601 Sunnyside Avenue (Building 4, Second Floor), Beltsville, Maryland. The Hall was inaugurated in 1986.
