House History

Named for Edgar W. Stanton (1850-1920). Stanton received the first diploma awarded at Iowa State in 1872, and played shortstop in Iowa State’s first baseball team. Initially, he conducted all of the mathematics courses at Iowa State. He was made Head of the Mathematics Department in 1876, and served as secretary of the College Board of Trustees from 1874-1909, acting dean of sciences 1910-1913 and dean of the Junior College from 1903 to 1920. He was acting president for the organization of the Iowa State Alumni Association in 1878. The famed Iowa State Campanile had its beginning with 10 bells which Stanton donated in 1899 in memory of his first wife, Margaret. After his death, the carillon of the campanile was renamed the Edgar and Margaret McDonald Stanton Memorial Carillon.
