The collection includes UC Davis viticulture specialist Curtis Alley's copy of "Laboratory Plant Physiology" by Bernard Meyer
and Donald Anderson with extensive drawings, notes, and problem solutions by Alley.
Curtis J. Alley was lecturer and specialist in the Department of Viticulture and Enology. He wrote extensively for agricultural
and wine industry publications relating to his findings in the propagation of rootstocks, grafting, and the development of
virus-free grape varieties which could be grown successfully in various regions of California. He served in the US Army Air
Corps in World War II, was a member of the American Society of Enologists, and the International Plant Propagators Society.
Dr. Alley passed away in 1984; upon his death, his family requested that a scholarship be set up in his memory.
