House History

Leslie Johnson (1905-1967) graduated from Iowa State (B.S. 1929, M.S. 1938, Ph.D. 1941). He came to Iowa State as head of animal science in 1954. The Faculty Citation received in 1967 best summarizes the life of this man; “Beginning in 1926 as a student, Dr. Johnson has had a genuine interest in this development of the Animal Science department. Under his direction, during the past thirteen years, the department has grown in size and stature and is widely recognized as the outstanding department of undergraduate studies in this field besides having international reputation in extension research and graduate programs. His sincere interest in people and problems has made it easy for him to become acquainted intimately with people in Iowa as well as people nationally and internationally.”
