House History

MANEY, Thomas Joseph (1888-1945) was employed by Iowa State immediately after he graduated in 1912 and continued on the staff until his death. He served as head of the pomology sub-section of the Agricultural Experiment Station for 28 years. He received national recognition for work on the development of hardy dwarf apple stocks, is credited for introducing a special dwarf variety known as Clark's seedling, and did valuable work with thornless rose stock. He was a genial man with a keen Irish wit. His contributions in scientific and practical bulletins and papers number in excess of one hundred and his influence in achieving a better horticulture for the nation and Iowa was widespread.
