Scope and Contents note

The records of the Assistant Dean of the College of Agriculture consist of correspondence and administrative materials including budgets, reports, admissions information, scholarship applications and awards, and student advising records. During the time period covered by these records Edwin G. Schafer, formerly head of the Department of Agronomy, held the position as Assistant Dean. Because of Dr. Schafer's background, the collection also contains a great deal of information dealing with agronomy research.

During 1947 and the first part of 1948 E. C. Johnson, Dean of the College of Agriculture, was involved in a special project in Latin America, leaving the Assistant Dean to handle most of the departmental correspondence and duties in addition to his regular duties of supervision of agricultural personnel-- faculty, staff, researchers, and students--and administration of placement services for agricultural graduates.

There is some overlap between these two series. Material filed within each of these sub-series is arranged alphabetically by subject. The material within each folder is arranged chronologically.
