A little history
The Department of Genetics was established in the College of Agriculture here in 1910, the first of its kind in the U.S.. The man who initiated the move that led to founding the Department was W.D. Hoard whose bronze statue executed by Gutzon Borglum stands on a marble pedestal at the head of Henry quadrangle just outside our door.
