Historical Note

In 1919, a horticultural products processing program, the first of its kind in the United States, was begun at Oregon Agricultural College by Ernest H. Wiegand. The modern maraschino cherry was developed by this program in the 1920s. In 1937 the program was established as a department, Food Products Industries. A seafoods lab in Astoria was established in 1940. The department was renamed several times; in 1962 it became the Department of Food Science and Technology. Research efforts have involved nearly every food product produced in Oregon including tree and cane fruits; nuts; vegetables; and meat, dairy and seafood products.

Content Description

The Food Science and Technology Department Photographs document the department's food processing and canning laboratories and equipment; research and testing activities of the department; faculty, staff, and students; and canners' and frozen food packers' short courses offered by the department. Several images of the Food Technology Building (now Hovland Hall) are included in the collection. Faculty members Ernest H. Wiegand, Thomas Onsdorff, and H.W. Schultz are depicted in the collection. Postcards of the Italian Swiss Colony Vineyards in Asti, California depict the winery, vineyards, sampling room, and wine vaults.

The collection includes many photographs of commercial food packing and processing facilities and equipment throughout Oregon as well as in Washington, California, and British Columbia, such as those used for walnut and fresh fruit packing, prune drying, and fruit and vegetable canning. Images of packaged food products and of mobile relief canneries in the early 1930s sponsored by organizations such as the Extension Service are also included.

Several images from the collection are available online in the Best of the Archives digital collection. Photographers include Angelus Commercial Studio, Ball Studio, Drake Brothers Studio, Robert W. Henderson, and Wilfley Studio. The collection includes 465 prints, 167 nitrate negatives, 46 film negatives, 44 glass negatives, and 7 lantern slides.
