House History

Harvey Lee Lantz (1888-1965) was a graduate of Oregon State (B.S. 1916) and Iowa State (M.S. 1918). He joined the Iowa State staff in 1917 and became an associate professor of horticulture and head of the pomology subsection of the Iowa Agricultural Experiment Station. In 1957, he received national recognition on the development and release for commercial use of a new variety of apple, the Jonadel, which he had worked on for nearly 30 years.
