    Adlard, Richard (Ithel Richard), 1915-1997 (creator).
    Richard Adlard Collection, 1930s.
    Phy. Description: 
    2 cu. ft. : 2 boxes, 1 folder.
    Digital Reference: 
    Bio / His Notes: 
    Exchange student in China, 1937.
    Scope and Content: 
    Correspondence, extensive agricultural notes, photographs, maps, and a scrapbook from Adlard's time as a student at Lingnan University, China. His photographs, commentary, and notes on rural life in both China and the Philippines are detailed and insightful. Includes articles written by Adlard that were inspired by his time in the Orient, on Philippine cocoanut production, Chinese village life, the farmers of China, soybeans as food and pre-war China. Also includes Adlard's later articles for various publications and his correspondence with Julia Needham of the Troy-Bilt Owner News about Adlard's work with drip system irrigation and design as well as his use of Chinese farming practices in his own home garden. Includes some brief biographical information on Adlard, related gardening and agricultural pamphlets and two copies of the Garden Way Inc. publication, "Gardening Beyond the Plow." This collection is valuable in its view of rural China and the Philippines just prior to World War II and the domination of East Asia by Japan.
    Arranged chronologically.
    Transfer from Pete Daniel in the Division of History of Technology, Agriculture Collections in January 2001. Daniel obtained Adlard’s papers from Julia Needham in 1998.
