Lincoln V. & Hazel M. Stauffacher Domm Scholarship
The late Lincoln Domm was professor emeritus of anatomy at Loyola University’s Stritch School of Medicine. A 1921 graduate of Northwestern College (now North Central College), he conducted extensive research on endocrines in the physiology of reproduction and he was a pioneer in the study of steroids. In 1970, North Central College awarded Lincoln with an Outstanding Alumnus Award and in 1979 granted him an honorary doctorate.
The late Hazel Stauffacher Domm was a member of the North Central College Class of 1924. She was active in civic affairs in Chicago for many years. She held offices at the University of Chicago Service League, Hyde Park Travel Club and Arche Club. She was also president of the Woman’s Society of Hyde Park Baptist Church and trustee as well as chairperson of the Travel Group of University of Chicago and a member of the Golden Diners, a governmental nutritional program.
In establishing the Lincoln V. and Hazel M. Stauffacher Domm Scholarship Fund, members of the Domm family spoke of their special interest in North Central College and of their desire to encourage future generations of students in the studies of medical sciences, dentistry and nursing.
