Records consist of correspondence, reports of activities to the Board of Control, and minutes of the Station staff meetings, which include correspondence from Stubbs concerning accounting and organization of the station.
The Nevada Agricultural Experiment Station was established with the Hatch Act in 1887, which provided an annual appropriation to each state to establish a nation-wide system of experiment stations, with a board of control to decide the agricultural problems to be studied. A lack of funds for the Nevada university removed the possibility of the station having its own staff and facilities, and the university president, Joseph E. Stubbs, was appointed director of the Nevada Experiment Station, the staff were university personnel, and the Board of Regents served as the Board of Control.
