International Hall of Fame (IGHoF)
The International Gladiolus 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.
