A Century of Botany-It is certainly a pleasure to greet you here on this occasion, especially so, because of the nature of the honorable work performed by the scientists of the State of Iowa. It is customary for the retiring president to deliver an address of some kind. In looking over topics which have been chosen by various retiring presidents I find such titles as "Local Problems in Science," "What We Have Been Doing," "The Academy and the People," "Science of One Hundred Years Ago," "Some Problems of Heredity and Evolution," "Two Centuries of North American Lichenology," "Botany in Its Relation to Good Citizenship," "The Mission and Spirit of the Good Scientist," "Conservation," "The Cosmology of the Universe." These titles cover a wide range of subjects, and it seems to me that I might discuss for a little while with you "A Century of Botany in Iowa."
