Sentimental Sunday: Moseley Hall at B.G.S.U.
Many years ago I was an education major at Bowling Green State University. Moseley Hall is one of the earliest buildings on the BG campus. It was named for Professor Edwin L. Moseley, who was on the BGSU faculty from 1914 to 1936. Prior to teaching at BGSU, Professor Moseley was a science teacher at Sandusky High School.
Several photographs of Professor Moseley can be seen at the Sandusky History website. An outstanding biography, entitled Edwin Lincoln Moseley : Naturalist, Scientist, Educator, was written by Relda E. Niederhofer and Ronald L. Stuckey in 1998. Several scientific publications written by Professor Moseley are found in the ClevNet library catalog.
Edwin Lincoln Moseley passed away on June 6, 1948. He is buried at the Oak Grove Cemetery in Bowling Green, Ohio. Biologists, botanists, and science educators today still find his studies extremely helpful, especially those dealing with the plant life of the Northern Ohio area.
