The records of the Department of Pomology include correspondence, course development materials, and an extensive set of photographic materials, including plates, prints, negatives, and slides.
Pomology is the only academic department in the United States devoted solely to fruit science. The University of California, Davis Department of Pomology is responsible for instruction, research and continuing education related to the biology and production of fruit and nut crops, maintenance of their postharvest quality and utilization of their many products. The great diversity of fruit and nut crops, the value of their products, and the wide range of soil and climatic conditions in California emphasize the unique role of the department.
