USU Irrigation Engineering Department slide collection, 1950-1995.


USU Irrigation Engineering Department slide collection, 1950-1995.

The Utah State University (USU) Irrigation Engineering photograph collection consists of 2,808 color slides, black & white negatives, and a few black & white photographs from projects and studies relating to irrigation, as well as, a variety of water issues such as cloud seeding, ice encasement, salinity, water conservation, and drought studies. Most of the images are from Cache Valley (Utah and Idaho), but there are also Utah images from Rich, Juab, and Sevier counties, as well as, Fruita, Spanish Fork, Circleville, Kanosh, Grantsville, Richfield, Monticello, Riverton, and Parowan. Additionally, the collection contains images of dams and irrigation projects in Montana, New Mexico, Idaho, Arizona, Canada, Brazil, and El Salvador. These images were taken by several irrigation and agricultural engineering professors including Lyman Willardson, Robert Hill, Jack Keller, Don Griffin, Bob Hagans, Bud Delay, and Dean Peterson. The original slide numbering system was maintained rather than creating a new system.

In 1903, the Agricultural College of Utah (A.C.U.), created the School of Engineering and Mechanic Arts. Prior to that, students geared their studies toward one of four different curriculums, Engineering and Mechanic Arts, Home Economics, Commerce, or Agriculture. In 1907, the Utah State Legislature restricted the curriculum, requiring the institution to drop engineering and the school became the School of Mechanic Arts. The Utah Legislature later changed its mind and in 1914 again allowed the A...
