House History

NOBLE, Alvin B. (1862-1936) graduated from the State University of Iowa in 1887. He had an outstanding record teaching English at the Michigan Agricultural College (now Michigan State University) before he came to Iowa State in 1899 as head of the English department until his retirement in 1932. He was the second chairman of the lecture committee and during his eight years of service did much to improve the cultural life of the campus.
