New Guide to UK Institutions for Agricultural Education and Research November 9, 2012

Posted by Will Thomas in Technocracy in the UK.

A while ago, I assembled tentative lists of agricultural colleges, agricultural research institutes, and some related institutions in the UK in the twentieth century. Since then, I have been in contact with Carrie de Silva of Harper Adams University College, who has put together a more expansive “Short History of Agricultural Education and Research: Some key places, people, publications and events from the 18th to the 21st centuries”. She emphasizes that it is more of a tentative guide to chronology than a well-verified academic study (the same goes for my lists), so use it with due caution, and feel free to suggest amendments to her. It is nevertheless a very useful and unprecedented effort to survey the lay of the historical land on this topic.  It is available here.
