Description:
As a joint effort between UW Libraries and the UW College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, the past 125 years of Wyoming Agricultural Experiment Station (WAES) have finally come together on the pages of this book, with fascinating imagery and a historical narrative of Wyoming agriculture and service that touches three centuries.    Until recently, the rich history of WAES was scattered  across archives, administrative files, personal papers, and undocumented oral histories in danger of permanently fading away from memory and view.  Through extensive research of WAES bulletins, publications, and reports, as well as personal interviews with a number of current and retired employees, this book can now reveal that history from 1891 to present.  The 125 years of WAES encompass more than twenty unique experiment farms across seventeen Wyoming towns, with seventeen directors connecting WAES’s personal past to its present, and a heritage nearly as old as the state of Wyoming itself.  The history of WAES truly reveals a legacy of service between researchers and producers in making Wyoming agriculture what it was, what it is, and what it ultimately can be.
