Abstract

In 1908, at the time of the origin of the School of Agriculture at South Dakota State College, the sponsors recognized that there existed a real need for a school of vocational agriculture and home economics. Hundreds of rural young people were leaving school upon the completion of the elementary grades, or at best a year or two of high school, and permanently entering into their occupation on the farms of the state. Agricultural and home economics skills were transferred to the younger generation largely by apprenticeship methods.
