House History

COOVER, Winfred F. (1875-1962) attended Otterbein College, Ohio (A.B. 1900) and Ohio State University (M.A. 1903) and joined the staff at Iowa State in 1904. He was made professor and head of the chemistry department at Iowa State in 1913 and served until 1944 when he retired from administrative duties. He continued as professor until his death. He received the I.S.U. Faculty Citation in 1951 for leadership in his field and for being an inspiration to his students. The Iowa State Journal of Science dedicated its April 1945 issue to his work. He served on many committees and belonged to many honorary and professional societies. His term on the Iowa State Athletic Council was during a period of athletic embroilment.

LOVELACE, Mary A. (N.A.-1915) received a B.D. degree with a major in education from the State University of Iowa in 1860. She came to Iowa State as an instructor in domestic economy and also served as preceptress and housekeeper from 1870 to 1873. After leaving Iowa State she taught at Cornell College.
