House History

CHAMBERLAIN, William I. (1837-1921) was the fourth president of Iowa State and served from November 1886 to November 1890. Among his accomplishments at Iowa State were (1) the establishment of a faculty government; (2) making provision for the construction of Morrill Hall; (3) giving strong support to the Agricultural Experiment Station Act which enhanced the growth of agricultural experiments at Iowa State. He was a good speaker and was especially effective in addressing farm audiences.
