Gleanings, the history of the first 100 years of The Northwest Experiment Station, Crookston. is a thirty fourpage document which gathers information, photographs, and other materials from many sources to trace the history of the first 100 years of the Northwest Experiment Station, Crookston and the change in the relationship to the farmers starting from the original "extension" concept to its development as a research center.
The authors note "Today, on the 100th Anniversary of the Northwest Experiment Station, we are still bound in some ways to James J, Hill's premise, that we should research the land, crops, and livestock for answers -then tell others about the true nature of what we have found."
