Biographical NoteReturn to Top

Alumnus and ichthyologist Carl Bond received B.S. and M.S. degrees from Oregon State College in 1947 and 1948. Bond also received a Ph.D. from the University of Michigan in 1963, for which he left OSU in 1959 and returned in 1960. He began his teaching and research career in OSC's Fisheries and Wildlife Dept. in 1949 as Assistant Aquatic Biologist. Specializing in the study of freshwater fish, Bond established himself as one of the world's leading authorities on Sculpin cottidae. Bond was also involved in research internationally, working in Latin America and Africa, as well as India and Iran in Peace Corps projects from 1967 to 1971. In addition to his teaching post, Bond also held the position of Assistant Dean of the Graduate School from 1969 to 1974. He became Professor Emeritus of Fisheries in 1984.

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

Series I pertains to research projects and consists of annual and quarterly progress reports, correspondence, presentation notes, studies, research outlines and proposals, and surveys. The bulk of this series documents three projects funded by the Oregon Agricultural Experiment Station: a survey of fishes in Oregon (#32), aquatic weed control (#34, 773), and aquaculture development in farm ponds (#294). Unnumbered projects in this series pertain entirely to research of Oregon and California freshwater and ocean fishes, including the identification and survey of sculpin, tui chub, and sucker varieties.

The correspondence in series II relates to Bond's research activities, interaction between others involved in fish research, the Peace Corps in Asia and other international research projects in Latin America and Africa, involvement with state agencies in the study and protection of endangered Oregon fish species, Bond's post as Assistant Dean of the graduate school, and faculty fellowships with the National Science Foundation.

Series III includes notes, research data, and studies pertaining to farm pond and weed studies, stream pollution, Coho salmon, the effects of certain chemicals on fish, fish oxygen consumption, Peace Corps research projects, and fisheries in India. The notes, which are found both in field notebooks and loose in folders, include research data originally compiled by Oregon State Fisheries and Wildlife Professor Roland Dimick.

Series IV contains a slide show script, presentation outlines, and a workshop guide from seminars and lectures presented by Bond. Consisting primarily of article reprints and abstracts, the publications in series V document fish research by Bond and others. This series also includes two publications on Oregon fish, one of which was written by Bond.

The photographs primarily depict various freshwater and ocean fishes and were generated as a byproduct of Bond's research, featured in publications, or were received by Bond for the purposes of identification. Images of farm pond weed research that include shots of a classroom field trip are among the photographs.
