House History

HAYDEN, Ada (1884-1950) received the first doctor of philosophy degree awarded to a woman at Iowa State in 1918. She received a B.S. from Iowa State in 1908 and an M.S. from Washington University in 1910. She was on the Iowa State staff from 1910 until her death in 1950. She was an accomplished research artist and photographer and was curator of the Iowa State herbarium for many years. The 200 acre Ada Hayden Prairie in Howard County, Iowa, was dedicated in recognition of her outstanding work in conservation.
