  4. 64% Agronomy Series #134: An Early History of the Penn State University Agronomy Department [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "During the 1980's a distinctive feeling came over the United States. This was a desire to have a better awareness of our past history (our roots). This instigated a publication of a history of Penn State University (Bezilla, 1985) and a history of Penn State's College of Agriculture (Bezilla, 1987). This trend did not trickle down to the Penn State Agronomy Department level. Although this was the case, an earlier attempt was made by Professor Charles D. Jefferies of the Agronomy Department in November 1954. Jefferies' manuscript was never published; and as we all know, unpublished material is lost to the future. Because of this reason this publication is being generated in order that Jefferies' information is not lost. His manuscript is Chapter 2 of this publication. It is also hoped that this publication will stimulate someone to pick-up the challenge and update Jefferies' history to the present day."
