Borlaug Statue Unveiling Planned
The date’s now set for the unveiling of a new statue to represent Iowa in Statuary Hall at the U.S. Capitol. It’s a likeness of famed Iowa agricultural scientist and Nobel Peace Prize winner Norman Borlaug. The March 25th ceremony in Washington is just one part of a lavish observance of the centennial of Borlaug’s birth.
