Biographical history

William Obadiah Pruitt was born in Easton, Maryland on September 1, 1922. He served with US Army Medical Corp during the Second World War. He obtained a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Maryland in 1947. The following year he completed an M.A. followed by a Ph.D. from the University of Michigan in 1952.

After teaching at the University of Alaska, University of Oklahoma, and Memorial University, Dr. Pruitt joined University of Manitoba in 1969 and retired in 1996. He remained a Senior Scholar following his retirement. In 1973 Pruitt launched the Taiga Biological Station a research outpost in the boreal forest. Often the funding for this endeavor came from his own pocket. He published extensively over a fifty-year period (1951-2001).

Dr. Pruitt received several awards and honours including the Government of Canada Northern Science Award Centenary Medal in 1989 and Vilhjalmur Stenfansson Award by the University of Manitoba Northern Studies Committee the same year. He received an Honorary Doctor of Science from the University of Alaska in 1993 and an Honorary Doctor of Science from Memorial University in 2001. Dr. Pruitt died on December 7, 2009.
