Scope and Content Note

This collection contains publications and reports relating to the administration and activities of extension programs, 4-H, home demonstration, the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), rural development, and farm education. Also contained are Cooperative Extension Service histories, correspondence, and plans of work relating to rural development projects.

The correspondence is primarily that of David S. Weaver, agricultural engineer, educator, and administrator. Weaver was professor, then Department Head of the Agricultural Engineering Department at North Carolina State University. He was Agricultural Extension Service Assistant Director, then Director, 1948-1961. Additionally there is correspondence generated by R. W. Shoffner, Agricultural Cooperative Service District Agent, 1945-1950, Assistant Director, 1950-1961, and then Director of the Cooperative Extension Service, 1961-1969.

Historical Note

The Office of the Assistant Director of the North Carolina State Cooperative Extension Service historically has served in a role that strongly supports the Cooperative Extension Service Director's Office. It is not uncommon for Assistant Directors to assume leadership of the North Carolina State Cooperative Extension Service and become Cooperative Extension Service Directors.

Individuals working in the capacity of Assistant Director have taken an active part in the administration and oversight of extension programs, short courses, university committees, 4-H, home demonstration, rural development, farm education and the supervision of field agents. The office traditionally has been responsible for correspondence, reports, and work plans relating to rural development projects, family life, beef cattle, dairy, swine and poultry farming, soil conservation, tobacco, corn and cotton crop production, nutrition and health, wildlife, land use planning, and agronomy.
