House History

Henry A. Webber (1895-1965) was educated at the University of Colorado (B.S. 1923) and at Iowa State (M.S. 1925, Ph.D. 1929). He joined the Iowa State staff in 1925 and was professor of chemical engineering until his retirement in 1961. He served on many committees and also as junior and senior college counselor. He was the author of a number of scientific papers and articles. He was best known professionally for his work in unit operations laboratory. It was Dr. Webber to whom students frequently turned to seek advice on course work, job selection, and other items of concern to them. When they returned to the campus as alumni, it was Doc Webber they wanted to see.
