Maynard A. Fosberg Soil Monolith Collection

The collection was officially dedicated in 1998 to Maynard A. Fosberg, emeritus professor of soil science, who began assembling the collection shortly after his arrival at the university in 1949.

The monolith collection was completely renovated in 2004 with the help of Jason Jimenez. Anita Falen developed cards and created a database of information about each monolith.

In 2007, PSES department head Ding Johnson added railings to secure and protect the monolith collection.

For information regarding the topics and resources below, please contact Anita Falen at afalen@uidaho.edu.
