Historical Note

For several years in the mid-1970s through mid-1980s, the Experiment Station had a separate Communications staff that produced films and television public service announcements about Station projects. David Arthur (Dave) King, producer of most of the films in this collection, was Assistant Editor for Radio and Television from 1976 until 1987, when he became Experiment Station Electronic Media Coordinator for the office of Agricultural Communications.

Content Description

This group consists of films produced by the Experiment Station. Most of the films were used in television public service announcements promoting the research programs funded by the Experiment Station and include footage shot both on the Oregon State University campus as well as at Branch Stations throughout Oregon. Notable subjects include fruit production (pears and cherries) and ornamental horticulture (rhododendrons and lilies); Tillamook Bay oyster harvester; hop flavor analysis and beer testing; grape harvesting and wine production; and Oregon fish and wildlife such as spotted owls, eagles, wild turkeys, pheasants, elk, mountain sheep, wild horses, and salmon. The group also includes films taken for "Strawberries for Tomorrow," a documentary production about mechanical strawberry harvesting.
