dc.description.abstractDrs. Royse P. Murphy and Lee B. Kass prepared this 179-page account of the history of Plant Breeding—among the most distinguished academic departments at Cornell—on the occasion of its centennial. In addition to a wealth of historical data for the department and for the university and an equally impressive collection of photographs with identifications and the six living department chairs characterize the milestones that occurred during their terms of departmental leadership. This department in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences is admired for its collegial and productive environment. Two of its graduates have been honored as Nobel laureates, notwithstanding that the work in this field is not normally considered for that honor. Find here a record of immense productivity in its teaching, research and outreach activities and its impact upon the university, the state, the nation and the countries of the world.en_US
