Abstract

A gift may be given for many reasons and what the receiver does with it may depend on many things. The Iowa Academy of Science Parish Farm fits this situation and serves as an appropriate focal point to tell a story-a story with a beginning and a developing plot, but one whose ending is yet to be written, if ever. The Farm story represents a relatively small part of the Academy's first hundred years, yet its potential is great for becoming a significant and unique part of the second hundred years. Just like those who may excitedly look back in the year 2075 and reflect on what has come to pass, we who have experienced the birth and early growth of the Iowa Academy of Science Parish Farm can excitedly look forward to what that future history may be.
