Scope and Content Note

The records of the Department of Soil Science at North Carolina State University contain long range plans, reports, research grants, publications, minutes, correspondence, memoranda, and brochures.

Historical Note

The Department of Soil Science at North Carolina State University had its beginnings with courses in agronomy that were first offered during the 1889-1890 academic year. Soil Science remained a program within the Department of Agronomy until that department was split into the Department of Field Crops and the Department of Soils. The Department of Soils became the Department of Soil Science in 1962.

Additional information and resources on the history of the Department of Soil Science can be found through the NCSU Historical State website external link.

Access to Collection

Carton 19 is restricted because it contains personnel files. The rest of this collection is open for research; access requires at least 48 hours advance notice.
