Have an Idea for an ASABE Historic Landmark?

ASABE's Historic Commemoration Committee (M-170), in cooperation with geographic units of ASABE, has been selecting and recognizing historic developments in agricultural and biological engineering in the United States for since 1926. In that time the Society has established 57 landmarks, with two additions scheduled for dedication soon.

The most significant events in agricultural and biological engineering are continually being identified and commemorated. Read about these landmarks, and enjoy short videos on YouTube.

Do you know of a significant technological development that is deserving of ASABE recognition? Are you interested in submitting a proposal? Nominations for historic commemoration may be initiated by individuals or ASABE geographic units, communities, or national committees. Endorsement by an ASABE geographic unit in the vicinity of potential plaque location(s) is required and commits the endorser to helping with site selection and dedication planning, as well as to providing some financial support of the endeavor. Follow the links at left to find nomination guidelines and a nomination form.

The benefits of the Landmarks program are much broader than these activities, M-170 Chair Bob Gustafson notes, "These Landmarks make the accomplishment of our profession visible, with permanent recognition. It is a way we can educate the general public, as well as our peers about the proud heritage of ASABE." If you have questions regarding a nomination or developing one, feel free to contact Bob Gustafson.
