Ames Historical Society 2014 Lecture Series Begins March 25

The first lecture of the Ames Historical Society 2014 Lecture Series is "Innovation & Invention: Agricultural Engineering at Iowa State" by Dr. Wesley Buchele, professor emeritus, Iowa State University.

When Iowa State was established as an agriculture college, the search for better farming methods began in interest. Recent notable inventions in I.S.U.'s Agricultural Engineering Department were conceived by Dr. Wesley Buchele. His large round baler and the rotary threshing and separation cylinder found in all modern grain combines are used around the world. The inventor himself will talk about the conception and development of these and other useful machines, the practical problems he and his students tackled and the unique solutions that emerged.

Tuesday, March 25, 7:00 pm, Ames City Auditorium 520 6th St.  Open to the public with a $3 free will donation requested at the door.
