Clemma Masters Darwin Scholarship for Human Ecology

Dero (Ted) Darwin, Jr. was the son of Dero Armistead Darwin, Sr. and Clemma Masters Darwin, both 1922 graduates of Tennessee Tech and leaders in the early Cookeville business community.  Ted was graduated with honors from the Interior Design Department at Parsons School of Design in New York City and went on to become a successful designer within the U. S. and Germany.  Retiring to Cookeville, Ted remained active within the community through his church, the Junior Chamber of Commerce, local and state historical societies, the Cookeville Depot Preservation Committee, and CityScape.  Through an estate gift, Ted hopes that Tennessee Tech students will gain the same appreciation of education that both he and his parents shared.
