Liberty Hyde Bailey

Bailey, Liberty Hyde (1858–1954), U.S. botanist and educator whose studies of cultivated plants linked the practice of horticulture to the science of botany. He established (1888) the country's first horticulture laboratory at what is now Michigan State University. As a professor of botany and horticulture (1888–1903), and later as dean of the College of Agriculture at Cornell University (1904–13), he pioneered agricultural education in the United States. His Cyclopedia of American Horticulture (1900–02) was considered a major reference work.
