One hundred years of existence brought a lot of people, events and actions that make up the history of our department. The transition from one instructor and a handful of students to an internationally recognized faculty includes many decisions and efforts that resulted in significant impact on Texas and beyond.
We are pleased that Henry Dethloff, a retired Texas A&M History Professor and the most prominent historian author of Texas A&M University, took the lead on writing our history. With the assistance of Steve Searcy as co-author, and the financial support of Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, Engineering Agriculture at Texas A&M: The First Hundred Years has been published by the Texas A&M Press.
