1. Pure Food Laws Marker
Inscription.  Pennsylvania's first pure food laws founded on the work of Penn State chemist William Frear (1860-1922), whose pioneer analyses of foods enabled the state to enforce truth-in-labeling laws. Frear also helped organize the first National Pure Food Congress, and the federal government's landmark Pure Food and Drug Act of 1906 was based on guidelines devised by an expert committee he headed.
 
Erected by Penn State Alumni Association.
