Anita Berry Martin
In the 1960s and 70s, Mrs. Martin attained professional success in the male-dominated sphere of computer systems engineering. Her personal interests in genetics fueled her second career in Arabian horse breeding. Her enterprise, Greystone Arabians became one of the premier Arabian breeding and show horse ranches in the country. Mrs. Martin worked with various Arabian horse organizations to support the Cook Children’s Hospital. Based on her professional background and personal interests, close family members recommended that the Anita Berry Martin memorial Fund award grants to agencies in North Texas that provide services in support of land and wildlife conservation equine therapy or equine welfare.
