  Taking it to the People: University of California Agriculture and Natural Resources Oral History Project

Taking the University to the People: The University of California Agriculture and Natural Resources Oral History Project documents the 150 year history of the University of California as a land-grant university that has provided scientific assistance and technology for the Golden State’s agricultural community and citizens in a system past UC President Robert Dynes described as the “R, D & D” model (Research, Development and Delivery). At the time of the project’s inception over two hundred living retirees from ANR provided a wealth of institutional memory. These oral histories document the work and accomplishments of men and women who bridged the gap between the university and the land, working for a sustainable agricultural economic future for California. This process of taking the University directly to the people is a unique occurrence in the university world.
