Collection Description: The William Allison Lloyd Papers consist of over 60 items contained in three volumes. They include papers and addresses relating to agricultural extension written between 1913 and 1945. The collection covers the pre-Smith-Lever extension work in the northern and western states. Lloyd addressed the organization of cooperative extension services under the Smith-Lever Act, the development of county agent work in the northern and western states, and the development of the County Farm Bureau as an extension agency. He also discusses the New Deal’s national agricultural policies and the Extension Service. Biographical information and a subject index to Lloyd’s public papers are included at end of the third volume. A fourth volume containing the proceedings of the Western States Regional Extension Conference held on August 5-8, 1946 includes a section of remarks from a memorial service for William A. Lloyd held in conjunction with the conference.
Historical or Biographical Sketch: William Allison Lloyd (1870-1946) was born in Morrow County, Ohio on September 9, 1870. He graduated from the National Northern University in Lebanon, Ohio. He later earned a law degree from that university. After practicing law in Texas, he returned to Ohio and settled in Meigs County. As a farmer, he took a leading part in revitalizing the Grange movement in Ohio. Lloyd was hired by the USDA Office of Farm Management (later the Office of Cooperative Extension Work) in 1913 to supervise the work of county agents in more than 30 midwestern and western states. He pioneered programs in farm leadership at the local level, and developed plans for state and county bureaus to conduct extension work. Lloyd was known for his contributions of scientific applications to practical farming.
