Beach - Spencer A. Beach was undoubtedly one of the most well known and far seeing professional horticulturists of the early 20th Century. In 1891 he became horticulturist at the New York Agricultural Experiment Station at Geneva where for 14 years he was known as an outstanding pomologist and an individual with a broad educational viewpoint. His knowledge of apples, grapes and bush fruits was extensive and he published the classical apple cultivar publication "Apples of New York" in 2 volumes (1905). He initiated also the breeding program which has continued in New York up to the present. In 1905 Professor Beach became Vice-Dean and head of the Department of Horticulture and Forestry at Iowa State College. The work in forestry at Ames owed its introduction and establishment to Professor Beach. He took a very active part in college administration and in work of the various departments. He particularly encouraged initiation of more intensive studies of genetics. He developed an extensive apple breeding program at Ames.
