Abstract:

Arthur Thomas Erwin was born to John L. and Elizabeth (Birney) Erwin on November 8, 1874, in Fulton, Missouri. He received his B.S. (1900) from the University of Arkansas and his M.S. (1902) from Iowa State College (University). He attended the Shaw School of Botany at Washington University from 1904-1906. During his graduate studies, Erwin was an Instructor (1901-1902) in the Iowa State Department of Horticulture. After receiving his M.S., Professor Erwin was promoted to Assistant Professor (1902-1903), Acting Professor in charge of the department (1904-1905), Associate Professor (1904-1911), Professor of Truck Crops and Landscape Gardening (1912), and Professor of Horticulture (1913-1956). Professor Erwin relinquished his teaching duties in 1915 to focus on vegetable research for the Iowa Agricultural Experiment Station for which he served as Acting Horticulturalist (1903-1904), Assistant Horticulturalist (1905-1914), Chief of the Vegetable Crops Subsection (1915-1940), and Research Professor of the Horticulture Section (1940-1956). Professor Erwin contributed greatly to early Extension work in vegetable crops. His research led to the systematic classification of the various species of squash, pumpkins, and peppers. Professor Erwin also wrote numerous articles on sweet corn, potatoes, onions, and other garden vegetables. Numerous professional and community organizations benefited from Professor Erwin's active involvement. He joined the Iowa State Horticultural Society in 1900 and served as President (1924-1925). He received the Society's Honor Award in 1949. Professor Erwin was active in the formation of the Iowa Vegetable Growers Association. He also was a charter member of the American Society of Horticultural Science and served as President (1930). Locally, Professor Erwin served on the Ames Board of Education, the Mary Greeley Hospital Board, and was a charter member of the Ames Kiwanis Club. Arthur Erwin married Mary Turner in Oskaloosa, Iowa, in 1905. Together they had three children: Doris, Howard R., and Evalyn. Professor Erwin died on March 1, 1970.
