Scope and Contents

From the Series:

This series consists primarily of Louis Carpenter's routine correspondence dated 1900 to 1910. There are letters from and to manufacturers and publishers concerning equipment, materials, and books that might be needed in the department and for the new Civil and Irrigation Engineering Building. Carpenter's role as professor and chair is reflected in the letters concerning students, including letters of inquiry about the department, letters of recommendation, grade reports, and courses offered in the department. Included as well is some correspondence regarding field surveys carried out under Carpenter's direction. As director of the Colorado Experiment Station, he received requests for information and Station publications. The controversy about the focus of the college includes solicitation of information from other agricultural colleges as well as letters seeking support for his position that the college be more than a training school for farmers. Folders are arranged in alphabetical order, with approximate chronological order within folders. At the end of the series are lantern slides, depicting dams in France, Algeria, California, and Colorado. They are in order of the number on the slide.
