MC 00228 Guide to the North Carolina State University, Department of Plant Pathology Reprint Collection, 1876-1973

The collection is arranged into two series: Series 1. Tobacco reprints; and, Series 2. Reprints by Author. The tabacco reprints are bound in volumes by topic; the volumes are arranged in roughly alphabetic order by topics, which corresponds to the reprint numbers assigned by the Plant Pathology Department. There is no discernable order within the volumes. Series 2, the Reprints by Specific Authors, is arranged alphabetically by author. Within the bound volumes by author, the reprints are arranged chronologically.

Historical Note

Plant pathology at North Carolina State University, like much of the current College of Agriculture and Life Sciences curriculum, grew out of work done by the North Carolina Experiment Station. During the 1890s, occasional classes in plant pathology were taught as a part of the Horticulture curriculum, and work was also performed in cooperation with the Experiment Station. Coursework devoted entirely to plant pathology did not begin until the 1901-1902 school year, with the creation of the Biological Division and the appointment of F. L. Stevens as Instructor in Biology. During the 1920s, plant pathology education and research was reorganized as a part of the new Department of Botany. Over the next decades, the number of courses and faculty devoted to plant pathology would continue to grow.

In 1945, the Plant Pathology section of the Botany Department was created, and James H. Jensen was named as the first head. Another reorganization took place in 1950, when Plant Pathology became one of five faculties in the newly created Division of Biological Sciences. It was after this latter shake-up that the department finally moved into its current home in Gardner Hall, after previously having used space in Withers and Patterson Halls. Under Jensen's leadership the department grew from 5 to 20 faculty members, and continued to expand its research and extension role throughout the state. In addition, the first Pesticide School (currently called the Crop Protection School) was held in 1949, and the first Plant Disease Clinic in 1951.

D. E. Ellis became the second department head in 1954, and continued the growth of the department's activities. By his retirement in 1973, the faculty had increased to 48, and the department's space in Gardner had likewise expanded. In 1958 Plant Pathology became a full-fledged department, and was included along with four other Departments in the creation of the Institute of Biological Sciences. With the discontinuation of the Institute in 1971, Plant Pathology became a department within the School (now College) of Agriculture and Life Sciences, where it remains today.
