Biographical/Historical note

The Washington State University Agriculture Research Center (ARC) is a part of WSU’s College of Agricultural, Human, and Natural Resource Sciences (CAHNRS). The ARC began in 1892 as the Washington Agricultural Experiment Station, then an element of the Washington Agricultural College, Experiment Station, and School of Science, now Washington State University. Located near Pullman on a farm donated to the state, the station became the site of agricultural instruction and experimental work conducted by the staff of the station and the faculty of the College of Agriculture. It soon extended to branch stations across the state. In 1946 it became part of the Institute of Agricultural Sciences, and in 1965 it was integrated into the newly-organized Agricultural Research Center (ARC) of the College of Agriculture.

Washington State’s commodity commissions are “industry-funded state agencies that promote and fund crop research and/or the marketing of crops.” The commissions are considered governmental agencies as they are state-mandated, but they are governed and funded by growers under the supervision of the state Director of Agriculture. The oldest Washington commodity commission, the Washington Apple Commission, dates to 1937.

Scope and Contents note

The collection consists primarily of research proposals for agricultural projects seeking funding, and then of research progress reports for funded projects. Usually both the proposals and progress reports for a given year are combined in one document. Documents date from 1976 to 2011. Each report is addressed to one of the Washington State commodity commissions; a very few series may be addressed to other commissions.

The research covered in these documents generally comes from subsidiary departments to Washington State University’s College of Agriculture (later CAHE, still later CAHNRS).

Arrangement note

Materials are arranged alphabetically in series by the agricultural commodity covered in each report. A few series contain other types of reports besides the proposal and progress reports; those other report types will be in a subseries after the proposal and progress documents. Within all these subseries, materials are ordered chronologically. At the end of the larger series are a few small series which are not limited to one specific commodity; these are arranged by the committee they report to.

Conditions Governing Access note

This collection is open and available for research use.

Conditions Governing Use note

Copyright restrictions apply. Some materials were originally noted as privileged documents not for republication, but all such restrictions in this collection have expired.

Immediate Source of Acquisition note

The majority of the documents in this collection were donated by the Washington State University Agricultural Research Center (ARC) to the WSU Libraries’ Manuscripts, Archives, and Special Collections (MASC) on July 28, 2011, and accessioned as UA2011-09. An ongoing file reorganization project in the ARC meant a slow steady stream of these continued coming in to MASC through April of 2015, when the project finished. All these materials were treated as part of the one initial accession (UA2011-09). Some materials from this accession were filed in the WSU Publications collections, and one small set of loose papers related to Horse Heaven Irrigation will be processed separately.

Processing Information note

The collection was processed in April and May of 2016 by University Archivist Mark O’English.
