E.S. McFadden

Updated April 19, 2001

About Our Family Research


Edgar Sharpe McFadden saved an estimated 25 million persons from starvation because he developed a rust-resistant bread wheat. He was awarded the John Scott Medal in 1955 from the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Others who have received the Scott Medal include Thomas Edison, Marie Curie, and Marconi.

Each year (1st weekend of May) his descendants gather to honor his memory. We have chosen New Braunfels, TX as the site of our reunion. Camping, for those inclined, is at Huaco Springs on the Guadalupe River. Activities include rafting, tubing, swimming, water park excursions (Schlitterbahn), dancing (Gruene Hall), storytelling, fishing and other fun stuff.
