HISTORY

Beginning in 1931, the United States Department of Agriculture began cooperative studies with the State College of Washington. Projects covered cereal improvements, cereal diseases, noxious weed investigations, and seed production investigations. Notab le individuals involved in the projects were Orville Vogel, C.S. Holton, C.I. Seely, Robert Allen, and W.C. Robocker.

ARRANGEMENT AND DESCRIPTION

Cooperative research projects have involved matters such as the development of plant varieties, control of plant diseases, control of weeds, and the production of seeds. In the years from 1931 to 1970, attention focused on cereals, especially wheat. Some investigations involved grasses.

Annual reports of cooperative research projects summarize activities and typically are bound in book form.

The reports are arranged by their topic of investigation and author placed in chronological order. A few individual reports, some of which are USDA projects, but not necessarily in collaboration with the State College of Washington, are placed at the end of the sequence.
