Historical Note

The Conservation Institute was created in 1937. Although it was called an “institute” it was possibly an academic department. The curriculum was reorganized in 1950 and the Conservation Division was created. The Conservation Division and Conservation Institute existed simultaneously for 1950. In 1951 the Institute was disbanded. The curriculum was reorganized in 1956 and the Division of Conservation was disbanded and the courses reorganized into other departments.
