MetadataShow full item record
Colman, Gould P.
In August of 1963, Dr. Gould Colman, University Archivist Emeritus, interviewed Professor Howard W. Riley, who was the head of the Department of Agricultural Engineering from 1907-1945. In these interviews, Professor Riley candidly records his accomplishments and mistakes, describes his limited access to educational resources that now seem primitive, and repeats his commitment to the overriding goal of teaching and research in the College at the time, and helping New York's rural people improve life's quality in farm and home life.
