Abstract

The Western Farm Economics Association originated from a 1927 meeting in Reno, Nevada, in which F. B. Headley (in charge of farm development at the University of Nevada) advocated a forum for research and dialogue specific to western agricultural problems. The name was changed in 1968 to the Western Agricultural Economics Association. Membership includes economists and sociologists employed by institutions of higher education, the federal government, and corporations interested in western agriculture. The collection includes correspondence, financial records, minutes and other documents pertaining to annual meetings, membership lists, and information on affiliations with national and international agricultural economics associations.
