Army Specialized Training Program Records, 1943-1946

Historical Note:

Unit 3900 of the Army Specialized Training Program (ASTP) was established by the War Department at Oregon State College in March 1943. The program provided training for high grade technicians and specialists needed by the Army for the war effort. Most of the instruction was provided by regular Oregon State College faculty; E.B. Lemon, as Dean of Administration, was Coordinator of the ASTP for Oregon State. Enrollment peaked in the summer of 1943 with more than 1300 ASTP students at Oregon State College.
