Daisy Mae Weeks Buchholz was a member of the charter class of William Smith College (1912). She was born on September 13, 1888 in Belvue, Kansas and died on April 18, 1987 in Valatie, New York. Daisy attended high school in Marcellus, NY. While at William Smith, she majored in Biology and met her husband Arthur B. Buchholz, a member of the Hobart class of 1909. Daisy and Arthur's marriage in 1914 was the first of its kind between Hobart and William Smith students. Their granddaughter, Margaret Frisbee '64, was the first granddaughter of a William Smith alumna to matriculate. In 1987, only a few weeks after her passing, Hobart and William Smith Colleges awarded Daisy an honorary degree, and in 1990, the Daisy Weeks Buchholz Ring Award was created to honor a William Smith junior considered a good leader and citizen.
