New history of Department of Horticulture available online

horthistA new History of the Department of Horticulture is now available online. The new version, issued as part of the celebration of the department’s 125th anniversary, was authored in large part of Professor Emeritus Ted Tibbits with help from other emeriti and current horticulture faculty members. It builds on a history prepared for the department’s 100th anniversary by the late Professor Emeritus Malcolm “Mac” Dana.

Contrary to rumor, the book is not subtitled “The story of the only CALS department that never changed its name.”
