Key to the Arrangement

The Blaney collection is divided into three sections, although all reports are numbered and indexed as a single group. Items 1-317 consist of publications and reports by, or under the supervision of, Mr. Blaney. Material is arranged chronologically with undated or irregularly dated reports at the end of the section. Items 318-367 are reports prepared during World War II for the Emergency Rubber Project of the U.S. Forest Service. Mr. Blaney's geographic organization of these reports has been preserved. Items 368-393 are reports and publications in chronological order, with additions to the cover or title page indicating Mr. Blaney's involvement.

Biographical Information

Harry French Blaney, a water conservation engineer, made significant contributions to irrigation research not only in his native California, but also throughout the world. In 1915, Mr. Blaney received a B.S. degree in civil engineering from the University of California; and upon graduation, he worked two years for the Southern California Gas Company. He began a career with the U.S. Department of Agriculture in May 1917 that continued until his retirement in 1962. From that time until 1973, he was a research associate at the University of California, Los Angeles.
Mr. Blaney was awarded the John Deere Medal from the American Society of Agricultural Engineers, the Superior Service Award and Silver Medal from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the Royce Tipton Award from the American Society of Civil Engineers. He is probably best known for his work in the development of the Blaney-Criddle Formula, a method for calculating water loss from plants by evapotranspiration.
In 1969, his oral history, Harry F. Blaney: Water Conservation Engineer, was published by Oral History Program, University of California, Los Angeles (G4702/J9-5).
