Agriculture Photographic Collection (P
ca. 1890-ca. 1970 (inclusive); ca. 1910-1945 (bulk)
421 prints & 105 negatives
Scope and Content Note
This is an artificial collection of photos from many sources
pertaining to various aspects of agriculture in Oregon, the Pacific
Northwest, the Midwest, and Canada. Several groupings of
photographs were made by/for the Extension Service and the
Agricultural Experiment Station, and depict the Emergency Farm
Labor Service and Branch Experiment Station buildings and
activities. Agricultural activities shown on campus include brooder
houses, chicken coops, farm machinery classes, and the dairy barn.
A small number of photos scattered throughout the collection were
made by the USDA in Oregon around 1910. Approximately 92
photographs were probably collected by Wallace Kadderly for use in
Western Farmer magazine, and include images of dairy and beef
cattle, Canadian agriculture, groups of agricultural editors, and
barns. Photographers, when known, are indicated next to each image
listed in the inventory.
