Content Description

This collection consists of photographs of Station research both in Corvallis and at Branch Stations throughout Oregon. Subjects include Station personnel; Branch station and campus buildings and research facilities; and research projects in agricultural chemistry, agricultural engineering, animal sciences, dairy husbandry, entomology, crop and soil science, fisheries and wildlife, food technology, horticulture, irrigation, microbiology, nutrition, poultry science, and vegetable crops.

Many of the photographs were taken by Robert Birdsall, Agricultural Information Specialist (1952-1963) and later Journalism Department faculty (1963-1983). Other photographers include Bob Mason, Bill Reasons, and Len Calvert.

This collection consists almost exclusively of b/w contact prints and camera negatives (4x5 and 120). The contact prints are glued to 6x9 in. cards. There are also a few b/w 8x10 prints without camera negatives (P132:237-238) and several color prints and negatives (P132:239-241). One negative (P132:054) has been removed from the collection because of excessive buckling of the emulsion.
