Page 2 Phi Gamma Delta A . Stuart Delgado Jr. '30 was born Janu- ary 12, 1913, in Memphis, Tennessee. He graduated from Highland Park High School and the University of Texas, where he was an active member of the swim team and the Phi Gamma Delta Fraternity. He served in the U.S. Navy during WWII teaching at the Naval Academy in Chicago and serving as port director in Singa- pore. He retired with the rank of lt. commander and remained active in the naval reserve. He re- tired in 1977 from Atlantic Richfield Corp. He was preceded in death by his wife of 62 years, Margaret Sears Delgado. Mr. Delgado loved his University and his Texas Fiji brothers and left in his will a significant por- tion of his estate to UT to benefit members of the Tau Deuteron Chapter of the Phi Gamma Delta Fraternity at the University of Texas. This is the fourth year of awards since the estab- lishment of the scholarship in 2016. The endow- ment is currently managed by The Texas Exes Association. The Fiji Scholarship Committee reviews the list of eligible candidates provided by Texas Exes through their formal application process. Awards are formally announced at the annual Pig Dinner ceremonies each spring. To date, more than $525,000 has been awarded to 71 eligible Texas Fijis. The Fiji Scholarship Committee is reviewing formal applications for academic year 2018-19, with awards expected to exceed $175,000. We are grateful to Brother Delgado for his gen- erous gift and are honored to fulfill his final re- quest to award scholarship funds to deserving Texas Fijis.
