Elizabeth Ann Bartholomew (1912–1985) served as the Secretary of the Southern Appalachian Botanical Club (now Society) from 1946 until 1981.

The Southern Appalachian Botanical Society annually presents the Elizabeth Ann Bartholomew Award in memory of her untiring service to the public, to plant systematics, and to this organization. This award is presented to individuals who have also distinguished themselves in professional and public service that advances our knowledge and appreciation of the world of plants and their scientific, cultural, and aesthetic values, and/or in exceptional service to the Society.
