Description
Homer Maris earned an M.S. degree in Agriculture from Oregon Agricultural College in 1918. In 1914, Maris began composing the words to a song that he felt would gather the spirit of Oregon Agricultural College, which became Carry Me Back, the College's alma mater. In 1918, Maris dedicated the piece to "Mother Kidder," the much-loved College librarian. Maris died in 1933 in a bicycle accident.
