The Rise and Fall of the Cornell Poultry Department, 1903-1991.
Nesheim, Malden C.
This new history of a truly pioneering field at Cornell was written by an emeritus faculty member of that department who later served as Director of the Division of Nutritional Sciences and University Provost. Nesheim provides an intellectual history of a hugely successful effort at Cornell that quite literally touched the state, the nation and the world. He chronicles the creation and dissolution of an academic department. He also describes the national and international impact of this academic department in feeding the people of the world.
