A.E. “Ed” Cott, from Ames, was an extension horticulturist at Iowa State University for 35 years until his retirement in 1984. Cott was a familiar face at Iowa’s golf courses, from border to border. A pioneer in extension work, Ed traveled the state, golf clubs in tow, and talked with the state’s superintendents about the latest turfgrass research.
