Biographical Note

Arthur Mauch, a specialist in Agricultural Economics, graduated in 1932 from the University of Nebraska, where he also received his Master's degree. After earning his Ph.D. at Purdue University, he worked with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Bureau of Agricultural Economics in Indiana, Washington, D.C., Virginia and Georgia, and he served briefly with the Farm Credit Administration in Washington, D.C. Mauch joined the faculty of Michigan State College (now Michigan State University) in 1945 and was professor of agricultural economics until his retirement in 1969.

Scope and Contents note

Mauch's papers reflect a special interest in vocational education. This collection consists of three unpublished manuscripts. The first, the second draft of a pamphlet entitled "Education and Training", was the fifth in a series of leaflets on "Developing Human Resources for Economic Growth," a publication project that Mauch coordinated at North Carolina State University in 1963. The second manuscript, "Human Development Potentials," was a paper Mauch presented at the Sixth Agricultural Industries Forum at the University of Illinois in January, 1964. In this paper he emphasized the need for adequate funding for vocational education programs, particularly those which would enable farm youth to receive training in non-farm occupations such as agribusiness.

The third item, "Extension Education on Public Affairs Programs," was a case study written by Andrew J. Nichols for the Cooperative Extension Service of Michigan State University. It was prepared for use in foreign training programs in public policy.
