Biographical/Historical note

Mr. William F. Sollars was a cereal chemist. Born on December 1, 1913, he graduated from the University of Illinois as B.S. in 1941 and from Purdue University as M.S. in 1949. From 1945 to 1947 he worked as a chemist at Northern Regional Research Lab, Peoria, Illinois. He became a research chemist at Purdue Agricultural Experiment Station in 1947 and stayed there until 1949. From 1949 to 1974 he served as a chemist in the Western Wheat Quality Labratory, Agricultural Experiment Station, Washington State University. Mr. Sollars was a devoted researcher, a prolific paper contributor and an active professional among his colleagues throughout the the United States. His academic endeavors are largely reflected in his papers. Mr. Sollars died in 1974.

Arrangement note

They are arranged in ten series, with all ten series contained in two cartons. Box 1 contains Series 1 and Series 2, while Box 2 contains the remainder.

While all the series are arranged according to catagories with general headings, the folders in each series are in chronological order. Series One is composed of manuscripts. Series Two deals with conferences that Sollars attended. Series Three is Reports, while Series Four holds materials under the title of Strategy. Series Five contains graphs, mostly related to experimental work. Series Six includes reprints. Series Seven consists of travel records. Series Eight is Notes, with Series Nine another sequence of Reports. The last series contains miscellaneous items. Some of the papers are undated or foldered without headings because they were found in that form and there was a lack of information that would properly identify the materials. Some three to four hundred cards containing information on hobbies and recreational activities, chiefly notes about articles in outdoor recreation magazines, were discarded from the records.
