Introduction:

The New Investigator Award was renamed in 1994 in memory of Dr. Glenn Snoeyenbos, because of his excellent contributions to the AAAP and avian medicine.  Dr. Snoeyenbos died in 1993.  The award was re-named a second time in 1996 in recognition of the $32,000 donation that the Bayer Poultry Business Unit made in support of the award.
