Large sundial on a pedestal in a grassy area

Where's Bob?

Do you know where university photographer Bob Elbert found this tranquil spot at a frantic time of the school year?


University photographer Bob Elbert caught a quiet moment at the Iowa State arboretum (adjacent to the southwest athletic complex). The sundial was installed in 1949, a memorial to Thomas Maney, a horticulturist at Iowa State from 1912 until his death in 1945.
