Cotton Research Records, 1968-1998 and undated

This one box contain copies of published articles on cotton research and the cotton industry that were written by Tech faculty.

Dr. Albin and Dr. Ethridge were seeking to start a collection that will gather all cotton-related research materials done at Texas Tech University and by Texas Tech faculty. Dr. Albin works for the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources, and Dr. Ethridge works for Agricultural and Applied Economics dept.
