Description
Entomology class, 1895. According to the 1895-96 college catalogue, "seven hours per week are given to entomology throughout the third term of the junior year." Students, such as those pictured here, were required to do fieldwork and collect insects for dissection and mounting. Entomology has been taught at Oregon State since 1873. It was organized as a department with zoology in 1889. It became a separate department in 1914. A. B. Cordley, for whom Cordley Hall is named, taught entomology in 1895.
