Liberty Hyde Bailey

Liberty Hyde Bailey, who transformed the study of horticulture and rural sociology among many other achievements during his time at the university, boasts a statue in the MSU Horticulture Gardens. Bailey served as Chair of Horticulture and Landscape Gardening at the beginning of his professional career, thus making this location a fitting one. The statue is cast in bronze, is 24 inches by 77 inches and was made in 1993.
