Phil Allen Memorial Fund


Phil Allen loved history and he loved horticulture. After a career of teaching Horticulture at the University of Minnesota-Waseca, he volunteered countless hours during the renovation process of transforming the P.C. Bailey house back to new life as the Bailey-Lewer History Research Library. Phil also worked with Joan Mooney on the landscape plan that includes so many heritage plants and flowers. When Phil died, the Phil Allen Memorial Fund was created in 2004 to specifically benefit the Bailey-Lewer Library always.
