Albert B. Storms, president of Iowa State University, 1903-1910

Albert Boynton Storms was installed as the sixth president of Iowa State College on June 6, 1904. Formal invitations were issued for the event, but no program remains with details of the ceremony.

Storms' installation address was entitled "The Outlook." In his speech, he spoke about the linkages between "liberty…the creative energy of ideas, the power of personality, the power of intellectual initiative, industrial efficiency, and the emancipation of human life from drudgery," and the role science played in these ideals. He also spoke of the place of science in the college, and how the sciences had come to the forefront of education.

Storms' strong opposition to the newly created state board of education led to his resignation from Iowa State in 1910. In 1918, he became president of Baldwin-Wallace College in Berea, Ohio. He passed away on July 1, 1933.
