Dr. Thurston E. “Lars” Larson was a brilliant, articulate, and dedicated water chemist and researcher. He made numerous scientific contributions in diverse areas, including but not limited to corrosion control, treatment and distribution of domestic and industrial water supplies, aquatic chemistry, analytical chemistry, and environmental chemistry. In addition, Dr. Larson continually emphasized the need for strong graduate programs in water chemistry and related fields to train qualified, dedicated scientists and engineers who will provide leadership in efforts to improve water quality. Larson Aquatic Research Support (LARS) scholarships honor the memory of Dr. Larson by providing support and encouragement to outstanding graduate students preparing for careers in the fields of science or engineering to which Dr. Larson made significant contributions.
