The following records were transferred to the University Archives by the Department of Entomology in November of 2003. The primary focus of the material is on the management of plants and crops, insects (grasshoppers in particular), and pesticides, with the majority of the records spanning the years 1930-1960. They contain the following records: files of several prominent faculty and extension entomologists including Roger C. Smith, E. G. Kelly, Dell E. Gates, Carl M. Rettenmeyer, and F. L. Poston; K-State and Entomology Department publications; correspondence and research files of faculty; reprints of faculty from various publications (Kansas Academy of Science, Kansas Entomological Society, etc.); course files of faculty; company advertisements and operating manuals for farm implements. The approximate years covered by the records are 1910-1980.
