A Chronicle of the Northwest School of Agriculture
and Experiment Station, 1895 - 1968
Cycle (PDF) is a history of the Northwest Experiment Station and the Northwest School of Agriculture. The author, Ruth Anne Stymiest, was employed as a part of UMC University Relations. She wrote a feature in the publication UMC Inside Out called "Glimpses from the Past." Ms. Stymiest enjoyed gathering historic information, and Cycle is a result of that interest.
Information for the publication was gathered from Hersch Lysaker, Berneil Nelson, and others. They assisted in locating historic photographs for the publication. Old yearbooks, publications, and news articles were also used to paint a picture of the way of life in the region.
Note: All documents are in PDF format.
