Melvin R. Arnold, a 1938 graduate of Jamestown College, spent his career as an international consultant in catalysis and synthetic fuels. He expressed pride in all Jamestown College students and was a significant donor to the College, establishing an annual chemistry scholarship in 1982. Through his estate, the Melvin R. Arnold Scholarship was established, with the first awards taking place during the 1997-98 academic year.
