             Historical note 
             In 1862, President Lincoln signed the Land Grant College Act (the Morrill Act) to foster the founding of a college in each state supported in part by public funds. Three years later, the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Kentucky University was formed. Studying agriculture however, was difficult as the subject as an academic discipline had not yet come into being. It wasn't until after the agricultural experiment stations were established and in operation that a sufficient body of knowledge of agriculture would be learned. In 1862m President Patterson hired the first professor of agriculture, William Ashbrook Kellerman as professor of economic botany, agriculture, and horticulture. This was the beginning of the Agricultural Department. However, Kellerman resigned after one year and over the next decade, four different men were to hold the agricultural professorship. 
             In 1885, President Patterson attended a convention to consider the question of experiment stations. Patterson immediately recommended to the Executive Committee that the State College establish an experimental station, to which they agreed and special agent for the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Melville Amasa Scovell was hired as director. Scovell quickly set up the station in the basement of the College Building (the present Scovell Hall) and began publishing bulletins reporting the results of their experiments for farmers. In 1890, the first Agricultural Experiment Station Building was completed (now Ezra Gillis Building). 
             With the name change of the State College to "State University, Lexington, Kentucky" in 1908, six divisions were formed including the College of Agriculture. Two years later the College of Agriculture and the Experiment Station merge under the leadership of M.A. Scovell. As the two continue to grow and new research activities are conducted, leadership changes occur with the new Dean and Director J.H. Kastle in 1912, then Thomas Poe Cooper in 1918. In 1923, Robinson Forest is given to the University of Kentucky (name officially changed in 1916) by E.O. Robinson Mountain Fund. A year later the Robinson Substation is founded as a branch of the Agricultural Experimental Station. In 1955, the Eden Shale Farm is given to the College of Agriculture by the people of the area to further research. In the next three years, three more farms are purchased by the College of Agriculture; South Farm, Coldstream Farm, and Maine Chance Farm. 
         
         
             Scope and Contents note 
             The College of Agriculture records are comprised of both paper and photographic materials dating from 1901 through 1974. The paper materials were created by individuals associated with Agricultural Extension at the University of Kentucky as well as agriculture throughout the state. Correspondence, reports, public papers, soil studies, and personal papers were created by University of Kentucky professors, employees of the Experiment Station, and state employees. Other topics include home economics, ESAR, soil study, Experiment Station, and tobacco materials. The photographic portion of the collection is comprised of lantern slides, negatives, glass negatives, transparencies, and prints. Subjects include Tennessee Valley Authority, crops, livestock, farm operations, farm structures, advertisements, 4-H, Agriculture Train, the Kentucky State Fair, and home economics.
