Description

Earl O. Heady receives special recognition for winning the 1977 Browning Award, at the American Agricultural Economics Association meeting in Blacksburg, Va. in 1978, from AAEA president Dr. Jim Hildreth. Heady also won an AAEA award in 1976. The Edward W. Browning Award is presented annually by the American Society of Agronomy to an individual who has made outstanding achievements in the improvement of food sources anywhere in the world.
The Agricultural Experiment Station began at the Iowa Agricultural College and Model Farm (now Iowa State University) as a result of the Hatch Act of 1887 and an act passed by the Iowa General Assembly in 1888. The purpose of the station is to conduct research relating to agriculture and associated disciplines and to disseminate that information. The name of the station was changed in in 1957 to Agricultural and Home Economics Experiment Station and again in 1966 to Agriculture and Home Economics Experiment Station.
