Outstanding Alumnus

During 41 years with USDA’s Agriculture Research Service (ARS) in Honolulu, Dr. Ernest J. Harris developed and proved innovative approaches for suppression of tephritid fruit flies, a major agricultural pest. His male annihilation, sterile release and biological control techniques have been widely adopted in Hawai‘i and around the world. Harris earned his PhD in entomology from CTAHR in 1975 and published more than 100 peer-reviewed articles. Recipient of a 2016 Congressional Gold Medal for breaking racial barriers as one of the first black Marines, he has also been honored by the NAACP, Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity and Black Hall of Fame in Arkansas, where he was born and picked cotton as a child.
