Alice Catherine Evans (1881-1975) was a microbiologist who worked for the US Department of Agriculture, investigating bacteriology in milk and cheese. Her research was responsible for discovering the bacteria that causes the disease known as ‘Malta fever’ in humans and cattle.

She was initially contracted to work on finding methods to improve the flavor of cheddar cheese, but she undertook her own research to investigate a disease in cattle which was believed to be harmless towards humans. Her findings led to the beginnings of milk pasteurization, and greatly reduced the incidence of the disease.
