A centennial tribute and account of the oldest and largest scientific organization in Indiana by two long-time members.

Bill Daily worked for Eli Lilly and Company, while Fay volunteered at the Friesner Herbarium, Butler University. Both Bill and Fay were interested in algae, and literally ate, drank and slept what Bill would call “the dear ol’ Academy.” They both were involved with the business of the IAS for decades, Bill having served as President in 1958. Researching and writing this history was their calling – literally a labor of love.
