Biographical / Historical

The first classes of agronomy taught at Brigham Young Academy began in 1885. Even though no teacher is listed for the course, it is assumed that James E. Talmage was the professor, as he had recently returned from school in the east where he studied chemistry and agricultural chemistry. Starting in 2003, the department name was changed to Plant and Animal Sciences.
