On the occasion of Chris Foote's 70th birthday, his former coworkers and faculty at UCLA created the Christopher S. Foote Graduate Fellowship in Organic Chemistry in his honor.

Chris and his wife, Judi Smith, gave their condo in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, to UCLA to fully fund the endowment. Chris Foote, an outstanding contributor to our department for more than 40 years, died in June, 2005, from complications of brain cancer. It was a great loss to every member of our department in many ways.

UCLA is fortunate to benefit from the continuing outstanding service and support of Judi Smith, who is the UCLA Dean and Vice Provost of Undergraduate Education and Professor of Physiology. The Foote-Smith gift allows our department to support our most promising applicants to our graduate program as well as our most outstanding graduate students upon completion of their qualifying examination.
