Dr. Charles E. Barnhart
Dean, College 0fAgriculture
T his project would not have happened without the vision of one man, Dr. Charles E.
Barnhart. Dean of the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture and Director of
the Kentucky Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service from 1969
Dr. Bamhart believed in the project from its inception, and believed in our ability to
complete it. He faithfully funded it when no results were evident. He bought equipment,
funded additional help, and never gave us a deadline.
He did this because he had a keen interest in past research and felt that we needed to
link the past and present together. He was proud of the accomplishments of the researchers in
the College and when asked on his retirement what he felt was his greatest accomplishment,
he said the quality of the faculty.
More than one third of the entries in the bibliography were written during
` Dr. Bamhart’s tenure as Dean of the College of Agriculture and Director of the Kentucky
Agricultural Experiment Station. This volume is not only a tribute to the researchers who did
the work, it is a testament to the man who guided them through so many years of research.
