International Hall of Fame

The International Hall of Fame was an idea conceived by gladiolus grower Sidney Baldridge of Greeley, Colorado, USA. He worked with the University of Northern Colorado President, Dean of University Libraries and the Chair of the Department of Biological Sciences to create a home for the Hall of Fame. At its 1980 convention, the North American Gladiolus Council dedicated the International Gladiolus Hall of Fame in the James A. Michener Library at the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley, where it resides yet today.

The organization collects gladiolus literature and artifacts from throughout the world and honors outstanding gladiolus cultivars (varieties) and individuals who have notably contributed to gladiolus culture. The artifacts are filed or are on display at the library which is open to the public. If you plan to visit, check the library hours.

The International Gladiolus Hall of Fame is a separate entity from the North American Gladiolus Council. Each has their own incorporation, officers, board of directors and by-laws. The annual meeting is held during the NAGC Convention.
