Abstract

For 31 years Arlen Patrick used bailing wire, duct tape - anything he could get his hands on - to keep the Department of Horticulture greenhouse on central campus operational. "This is an old structure," Patrick ('72 horticulture) says. "It was built in 1915, and while I was working there I tried to keep the thing going as best as I could. It took a lot of TLC." With a facility nearly 100 years old, there are going to be a few leaks in the ceiling and cracks in the floor. "it's unusual for a greenhouse to last this long," Patrick says. "It's a testament to the original structure that it is still in use."
