Organizational History:

The Tree Fruit Research Center was officially established in 1938 by an act of the State Legislature, but the initiatory step occurred in 1926 when the fruit growers of the Wenatchee district sent a committee to WSC to make a plea that the State College Agriculture Experiment Station carry on more effective experiments in the Wenatchee area. Fred Overley was the first superintendent and came to be regarded as the father of the center. Other records of the Tree Fruit Experiment Station are found in University Archives 190.
