It has been quite some time since the last blog post, our apologies. There was Christmas break when we struggled to get surveys done and wrap up collections that had been finished before break in the month that all the students were out. Then we had an intense push to get to the mid-way point in our processing in alignment with the mid-way point of our project. Spring break resulted in more harried catch up being done by Susan and I.
However, we've been working very hard and getting a lot done. We're down to mostly the large Institution and College level materials now. The University of Minnesota has a notoriously confusing evolution in terms of names, Institution levels, and such. It is with a certain degree of mental exhaustion and pride that I am able to present one of our more recent mini-projects: a timeline showing the evolution of both the College of Food Agriculture and Natural Resource Sciences (referred to here as institution level) as well as the lower level colleges of the University of Minnesota throughout it's history.
