Description: This image is of John Clough Holmes, for whom Holmes Hall is named. Holmes had a significant role in the establishment of Michigan Agricultural College (now MSU).

Shortly after the college was founded in 1855, Holmes was asked to design College Hall, the first building in the U.S. devoted to the study of scientific agriculture. Additionally, he helped design the curriculum and was the first horticulture professor at the college from 1857 to 1862.
