Biographical/Historical note

Orville A. Vogel, world renowned wheat breeder, who led WSU/USDA research teams that developed high yields wheats--Gaines and Nugaines--for the Pacific Northwest, was born at Pilger, Nebr., May 19, 1907. He received his BS and MS from University of Nebraska. In 1931 he came to WSU as a research agronomist with the US Department of Agriculture. He was awarded his Ph.D in 1939 from WSU. He retained the title of research agronomist with the USDA till 1966, and held courtesy appointments at WSU as Associate Agronomist, Division of Agronomy, and from 1960 till his retirement in 1973, as Professor of Agronomy, Collaborator, USDA. He was a Fellow and member of Sigma Xi. He received the Achievement Award of the US Department of Agriculture in 1962, National Medal of Science in 1975 and WSU's highest honor-the Distinguished Alumnus Award in 1977.

Arrangement note

The papers of Orville Vogel in this 1st Accession consist mainly of correspondence concerned with projects conducted at Pullman. Some materials concern administative details as well as scientific information. The papers are arranged in a single sequence of alphabetically ordered folders. This arrangement is a combination of two original sequences that had been disrupted over time and during relocation of the papers.

Addenda (2nd Accession) 1932-1988   Number of containers: 5 Linear feet of shelf space: 4

Scope and Contents note

Papers in the second accession consist of correspondence--both general and a series concerned with the Vogel Thresher, reports, subject files on a variety of wheat research topics, and photographs.

Arrangement note

The two accessions of Vogel papers have been retained as distinct entities, although similar materials are found in each. The arrangement of this second installment is somewhat more structured than the alphabetical system of the first installment, reflecting the rough arrangement found in the papers upon transfer.

Immediate Source of Acquisition note

The second installment of papers of Orville A. Vogel were donated to the Washington State University Libraries by Mr. Vogel in 1989 (accession MS89-19).

Processing Information note

The 2nd Accession was processed during Summer 1991 by Ling Jinqi.
