Historical NoteReturn to Top

The College Exhibit Committee coordinated exhibits pertaining to Oregon Agricultural College at the Oregon State Fair, county fairs, and other venues. The Committee reported directly to the College President. Reuben V. Gunn, Farm Management Demonstrator with the Extension Service, chaired the committee in 1921-1922. An office of information and exhibits was created within the Extension Service in 1923, with Wallace Kadderly in charge. Kadderly served as chair of the College Exhibit Committee for the remainder of the period represented by these records (1923-1928). Uriel Sellers (U.S.) Burt, as Assistant in Information and Exhibits, was responsible for construction, installation, supervision, and staffing of the exhibits.
