The Mary Soper Pope Memorial Award, informally known as the Mary Soper Pope Medal, was awarded by the Cranbrook Institute of Science of Detroit, Michigan, for notable achievement in plant sciences.[1] It was inaugurated in 1946, and the last award was in 1970. The medal itself was designed by sculptor Marshall Fredericks.[2]
