Budd family portrait with Joseph Lancaster Budd and Sarah Breed Budd with their children, Etta May and Allen Joseph. It was at Etta May Budd's urging that George Washington Carver transfer to Iowa State from Simpson College to study agriculture. Carver's first love was art, but Miss Budd feared that he would be unable to make a living as an artist. She felt it would be more practical to pursue another of his interests, plant science. She suggested he go to Iowa State, where her father, Joseph Lancaster Budd, was Head of the Horticulture Department from 1877 to 1900. Neg. 0039585
