Biographical Note

The department of Farm Machinery was first established at Kansas State Agricultural College in April, 1915.  This new department was transferred from the department of Agronomy to the division of Engineering and was headed by F.A. Wirt.  In 1918 the name changed to Farm Engineering and by 1922 it became known as Agricultural Engineering.  The name did not change again until 1994 when the department became known as the department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering.
