The College of Agricultural Sciences
Photographs were taken or assembled by College staff and faculty to
document the Oregon State University's academic and research programs in
agriculture; Branch Experiment Stations in Oregon; faculty, students, and
alumni; international programs; and special events, conferences, and
workshops. The bulk of the images are b/w prints and color slides; the
collection also includes nitrate and glass negatives; some film negatives;
and a few color prints.

In 1868, the Oregon Legislature designated Corvallis College as the
state's agricultural college, and in 1870 Corvallis College began its
agricultural curriculum. The next year the college acquired its first farm
(now Lower Campus), purchased for the school by the citizens of Benton
County. In 1873 the college issued its first agricultural research
bulletin, and a decade later the college established a Department of
Agriculture, which was the first in the Pacific Northwest. The Oregon
Agricultural Experiment Station was established on the campus farm in
1888, and in 1894 the first Farmers' Short Course was offered.
In 1908, the General Department of Agriculture was reorganized into a
professional School of Agriculture, and included departments in Agronomy,
Animal Husbandry, and Poultry Husbandry. Additional departments were added
in the 1910s and 1920s. By 1928, the School included ten departments, and
degree programs were offered in General Agriculture, Agricultural
Engineering, Landscape Architecture, and Horticultural Products. The
School established a Ph.D. program in 1932, and conferred is first
doctorate in 1935. From 1931 until 1965, the dean of the School of
Agriculture also served as director of both the Agricultural Experiment
Station and the Extension Service. In 1983, the name of the School was
changed to the College of Agricultural Sciences.
Deans have included A. B. Cordley, 1908-1931; William A. Schoenfeld,
1931-1950; F. E. Price, 1950-1965; Wilbur T. Cooney, 1965-1979; Ernest J.
Briskey, 1979-1987; Roy G. Arnold, 1987-1991; Conrad J. Weiser, 1991-1994;
and Thayne R. Dutson, 1994-2008.
Emile F. Pernot was hired by Oregon Agricultural College in 1890 to
teach photography and take photographs for the Experiment Station. Through
his pioneering work in microphotography, he developed an interest in
bacteriology, and was named the first chair of the Bacteriology Deparment
in 1900. In 1910 Pernot was named bacteriologist for the city of

The College of Agricultural Sciences Photographs document Oregon State
University's academic and research programs in agriculture; Branch
Experiment Stations in Oregon; College faculty, students, and alumni;
international programs; and special events, conferences, and workshops.
The collection includes glass negatives of crops, plants and other
agricultural topics that may be have been used for teaching as well as
images taken in 1913 by bacteriologist Emile Pernot of farms and slaughter
houses in Benton County. The photographs of Experiment Stations document
facilities, windstorm damage at the North Willamette Experiment Station,
and views of branch stations near Astoria and in Moro County.
The largest component of the collection is a group of about 900 color
slides, many taken in 2001, that depict students and faculty participating
in instruction and research activities and include images of farms,
research facilities, class field trips, university events, and students
Many photographs of individual faculty, staff, and students are
included as well as faculty, student, and alumni groups. Images of
attendees at conferences and workshops as well as the Oregon Dairy
Manufacturers Association meeting are part of the collection.
Photographs of the Kasetsart University campus in Thailand; classrooms,
laboratories, and other facilities; and Oregon State faculty, Kasetsart
University faculty and administrators, and Thai students document the
cooperative program between Kasetsart University and Oregon State College
in the 1950s and 1960s.
Many of the photos from the 1980s were taken or assembled by the staff
of the E.R. Jackman Foundation; they depict Jackman Foundation Board
members and staff; College administrators; awards presentations and
special events; and students and faculty.
Photographers include Robert W. Henderson, Emile Pernot, J.D. Vertrees,
and Dennis Wolverton.
The largest component of the collection is color slides; the remainder
is primarily b/w prints. The collection also includes nitrate and glass
negatives, b/w film negatives, and color prints.
