Transcription"Pure Seed Laboratory, Science Hall. Glomset and Sidney Hooper on the left. Prof. Stevens - when he had hair - at the right." (NOTE: Identifaction of individuals is probably in error, since Daniel J. Glomset had left NDAC in 1906 to pursue his MD at Rush Medical College in Chicago and O.A. Stevens did not come to NDAC until 1909)
NotesTitle supplied by staff.
Biography/HistoryIn 1907 Bolley began campaigning for a pure seed law, and in 1909 the State Legislature passed the law as it was written by Bolley himself. He served as State Seed Commissioner from 1909 to 1929. During this time the Pure Seed Laboratory determined varieties, authorized field and bin inspections, and issued tags certifying seed for sale.
Professor Stevens came to North Dakota in 1909 drawn by the new pure seed and drug law as well as the newly created State Seed Laboratory—a combination that created an opening for a seed analyst. He arrived in North Dakota and began his work as a seed analyst and assistant professor of botany at NDAC on September 1, 1909.
