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.
