Have you heard? OSU Extension turns 100 on July 24! And you know we love to celebrate with pictures, right?
In honor of their birthday, the OSU Archives invites you to view our newly launched on-line exhibit: Oregon State University Extension Service: 100 Years of Putting Knowledge to Work. The exhibit compliments the Extension Tour of Oregon collection in OSU Flickr Commons. We’ll continue to launch new sets each Wednesday through the end of August. So if you aren’t already waiting with baited breath — or if you are behind in your viewing — you can still mark your calendars to catch more new additions.
The Oregon Extension Service was established July 24, 1911 to extend the knowledge of Oregon’s Land Grant University to the rest of the state. Over the past century, hundreds of Extension agents have worked tirelessly to support that mission by engaging even the most rural of Oregon’s citizens to improve their lives at work, in the field, and at home. This exhibit is a look back at Oregon’s Extension Service and the people who have made it the program it is today. Learn more about the centennial on the Extension site.
The exhibit is curated by Laura Cray a graduate student in History of Science at OSU.
