Term: Juday, Chancey 1871 - 1944

Definition: professor, biologist, limnologist, b. near Millersburg, Ind. He graduated from Indiana Univ. (A.B., 1896; A.M., 1897). From 1898 to 1900 he taught high school science in Evansville, Ind., and from 1900 to 1901 was biologist for the Wisconsin geological and natural history survey. He was acting professor of biology at the Univ. of Colorado (1903-1904), and instructor in zoology at the Univ. of California (1904-1905). Returning to Wisconsin in 1905, he served again as biologist with the geological and natural history survey (1905-1931), and after 1908 was also a lecturer in zoology at the Univ. of Wisconsin. In 1931 he was appointed professor of limnology at the university, and served in this capacity until his retirement in 1941. With Edward A. Birge (q.v.), Juday made pioneer studies of Lake Mendota in Madison, and of the interrelationship of animal, mineral, and vegetable life in Wisconsin lakes; both Juday and Birge are credited with being leaders in founding the science of limnology. He was president of the Ecological Society of America (1927), the American Limnological Society (1935-1936), and the Wisconsin Academy of Science, Arts and Letters (1937-1939). He was co-author with Birge of numerous monographs on Wisconsin lakes. Who's Who in Amer., 22 (1942); M. Curti and V. Carstensen, Univ. of Wis. (2 vols., Madison, 1949); Amer. Men of Sci. (1921); Madison Capital Times, Mar. 30, 1944.
