About the Foundation

The Clifton C. and Henryetta C. Doak Charitable Trust was created under the Last Will and Testament of Henryetta C. Doak in memory of her husband, Clifton C. Doak.

Dr. Clifton C. Doak was born on January 15, 1895 in Hico, Texas. He received his master’s degree in biology from Texas A&M University in 1927 and his doctorate from the University of Illinois in 1933. He became an assistant professor at Texas A&M in 1929 and was head of the Biology Department from 1937 to 1960. After retiring from Texas A&M in 1960, he taught biology at Trinity University for three years.

Dr. Doak was active in the community, serving on the boards of the Bryan Boys Club, the Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History, and the Bryan Rotary Club. He was also a member of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the Botanical Society of America, and he was past president of the Texas Academy of Science. Dr. Doak died on February 27, 1985, at the age of 90.

Mrs. Doak was born on April 10, 1904 in Winona, Texas. She graduated from North Texas State University in Denton, Texas and became an elementary school teacher. Other than her interests in teaching and gardening, her life was dedicated to the support of her husband in his career and his community volunteer work. She died on February 27, 1992, at the age of 87.

The Clifton C. and Henryetta C. Doak Charitable Trust serves as a legacy to Dr. and Mrs. Doak’s mutual concern for the community in which they lived for many years.
