Biographical/Historical Note

Peter Henry Rolfs was born April 17, 1865 in Le Claire, Iowa. He received his B. S. from Iowa State College of Agriculture in 1889 and a M. S. from Iowa Agricultural College in 1891. He began his career at the Agricultural Experiment Station at the Florida Agricultural College in Lake City as a researcher and instructor in Botany and Horticulture. He remained at Lake City from 1892 to 1899. From 1899 to 1901, he served as a botanist and bacteriologist at the Clemson Agricultural College and Experiment Station. He returned to Florida in 1901 as head of the USDA's Plant Introduction Station and Subtropical Laboratory in Miami. In 1906, he was asked to serve as the Director of the Florida Agricultural Experiment Station and remained there until 1921. He also held the title of Director of Agricultural Extension in Florida, 1915-1920, and Dean of the College of Agriculture, 1915-1920.

In 1920, Rolfs accepted an invitation to establish and direct an agricultural school in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais. Rolfs served as Director of the Escola Superior de Agricultura e Veterinaria do Estado de Minas Gerais, em Viscosa, until 1929, when he became a technical consultant (Consultor Technico) on agricultural affairs for the State of Minas Gerais. He retired in 1932. During his stay in Brazil, Rolfs was assisted by his daughter, Clarissa, who functioned as his personal secretary, translator, and advisor. After 1932, Professor Rolfs and Clarissa traveled throughout Brazil, South America, and the United States studying agricultural education. He died in 1944.

B. Correspondence and Subject Files 1921-1943

This series documents Rolfs' tenure as the first director of the Escola Superior de Agricultura e Veterinaria do Estado de Minas Gerais, em Viscosa, and as Consultor Technico to the Department of Agriculture for the state of Minas Gerais. Also documented is the period after Rolfs' retirement in 1932. The correspondence file contains letters written and received by both Peter Henry Rolfs and his daughter, Clarissa Rolfs. The subject files contain articles and speeches written by the Rolfses, as well as letters and reports related to Peter Henry Rolfs' administrative duties. Of special note are Rolfs' annual reports for the Escola Superior and other documents related to the early years of the school and Brazilian agricultural education. Also of note are trip reports by Rolfs and others describing rural conditions in Brazil, primarily in the state of Minas Gerais, and Rolfs' reports to the Secretario de Agricultura for Minas Gerais. Rolfs' articles and speeches reflect a variety of research interests. Brazil's citrus industry is well documented, as is the cultivation of plants for the treatment of leprosy.

The correspondence file is most extensive for the years 1931-1932. Correspondence for earlier and later years is scarce.

Series: Divided into a correspondence file, arranged chronologically, and an alphabetical subject file.

C. Photographs

The photo collection in the Rolfs Collection is comprised of both loose photographs and albums. The loose photographs include pictures taken in Brazil, some family photos, and photos taken in the United States. Those from Brazil include views of the Escola Superior de Agricultura e Veterinaria at Viscosa, many and various pictures of agricultural crops, methods, and workers, and a small group of professionally done photos of Rio De Janeiro. One of the agricultural subjects concerns the cacao plant and shows the entire process from small plants through harvesting, transport, and storage. There are a number of photo portraits which apparently were sent to Peter H. Rolfs by friends and former students. Some of these are identified while others are not.

There are eight photo albums. The albums contain a variety of photographs. Following is a list of the albums with their assigned numbers and the subject matter in each.
