Scope and Content Note

This collection contains a genealogy of the Herman Ward Taylor family, material on the Methodist Church related to world hunger, and Taylor's Army discharge papers. Taylor's correspondents include R. J. Reynolds Jr., Charles Reynolds, Gov. R. W. Scott, Roy Park and Ralph Scott. Also included are records from the North Carolina State University Alumni Association, Board of Trustees, and Board of Governors. Information from 1962 to 1965 documents N.C. State's name-changing process. Taylor's "Talks" articles describe campus life from the period 1918 to 1926.

Biographical Note

"Pop" Taylor received a B.S. in Agricultural Education (1926) and an M.S. in Agronomy (1927) from North Carolina State College (NCSU), where a slight age advantage over his classmates earned him his nickname. He worked for the U.S. Department of Agriculture in N.C. and in Washington, D.C. before returning to Raleigh as the Director of Alumni Affairs at North Carolina State University in 1942. He retired in 1965, and served Wake County as a representative in the N.C. General Assembly from 1968 to 1970. He was awarded the Watauga Medal in 1978.
