Science Education at Humboldt State College, the Early Years: 1934-53

The instruments seen in this portion of the museum were used in teaching Chemistry, Physics, and Life Sciences at a time when Humboldt still served mostly for the preparation of school teachers for the north coast region of California. However it was also during this period when Humboldt began to focus on programs important to the rich natural resources surrounding it, such as wildlife and forestry.
