Scope and Contents note

These bound volumes contain both annual and monthly reports of the County Agent leader for the Agricultural Extension Service for all counties in Washington State, arranged by year from 1916-1922. These volumes hold summaries of notable field studies and demonstrations, notes on county visits by the Director of the Extension program, and weekly updates on the activities of county leaders across Washington State. Contained herein are a variety of studies, including soil studies, livestock investigations, plowing campaigns, dairy and poultry projects, orchard and garden projects, and general projects to improve farm organization and land management around Washington State. When taken with the comprehensive Agricultural Extension Service holdings in the Washington State University Archives these records illustrate the process whereby experts revolutionized Washington State Agriculture following the First World War and created the factors that led to the “dust bowl” conditions of the 1930s.
