Crop Science Club Records, 1969-1991

Scope and Content Note

The Crop Science Club Records are made up of annual review forms, certificate blanks, correspondence, financial records, fliers, meeting minutes, newsletters, newspaper clippings, notebooks, and photographs. Primarily documenting the organization and publicity of various events sponsored by the club including field trips, picnics, Dad's Weekend activities, corn sales, athletic contests with Crop Science faculty, and regular club meetings, these records also reflect the sale of seed identification sets assembled by the club as an ongoing fundraising project. These identification sets, also referred to as "seed mounts," were comprised of crop and weed seed samples that were mostly purchased by school districts. The two notebooks contain entries about a club field trip to California and sales of seed identification sets.

In addition to portrait shots of Crop and Soil Science alumni, the 58 photographs (54 prints and 4 negatives) depict seed identification sets and club activities.
