Organizational History:

Washington Agricultural College first employed a botanist in 1893. A Department of Botany and Zoology came into existence in about 1895. A separate Botany Department was organized in 1907, and continues to the present (2000AD). The Botany faculty has included many well-known botanical scientists.

Further documentation of the Botany Department can be found at the University Libraries, chiefly in the form of personal papers of various members of the faculty. See also WSU Publications 37.
