The Department of Plant Pathology’s upcoming celebration provides an exceptional opportunity to document the legacy and continuing influence of the department, its faculty, and alumni on the state of Minnesota and the world.
Do you have photographs, correspondence, teaching material, bibliographies, or other documents from your time in Plant Pathology? Do you have departmental files in your possession?
Professor Richard Zeyen, chair of the Plan Pathology Centennial Committee, and Elisabeth Kaplan, University Archivist, invite you to contact the Archives to discuss a long-term preservation plan and the possible donation of these historical materials to the University Archives.

We are working together to ensure that the Plant Pathology story, and the stories of the people who built the department, are carefully preserved and available to future generations.
