The Oregon Student Branch of the American Society of Agricultural Engineers was established at Oregon State College in the mid-1930s for majors in agricultural engineering. The national organization is now known as the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers.
Martin Hellickson, Associate Professor of Bioengineering served as faculty advisor for the student branch after he joined the faculty of Oregon State University in 1975. Hellickson retired in 2006.
The American Society of Agricultural Engineers (ASAE) Oregon Student Branch Records consist of materials generated and assembled by this student student organization at Oregon State University. The records include financial documents, certificates, constitutions and by-laws, correspondence, meeting minutes, memberships lists, and publications that document the activities and program of the organization. The correspondence primarily pertains to scholarships and awards offered through the branch and through the Department of Agricultural Engineering. The publications consist of issues of the ASAE National Student Journal published annually at the time of the summer national student meeting. The Journal includes annual summaries from student branches, including Oregon State.
