House History

Ada Hayden was the first woman to earn a Doctor of Philosophy degree at Iowa State in 1918. She was on the Iowa State staff for 40 years in the Botany Department and was also named Curator of the Herbarium. During her time at Iowa State she added more than 40,000 specimens to the herbarium. The Ada Hayden Heritage Park Lake in Ames is named in her honor.
