Collection 185
Henry C. Dethloff (1934- ). Papers, 1970-1991
1 ft., 8 in.
 
Henry C. Dethloff was on the faculty at USL from 1965 to 1968. He was in the History Department and was the director of the Southwestern Archives and Manuscripts Collection. He then went to the History Department at Texas A&M University where he remained until he retired.

Dethloff's major academic interest was agricultural history, especially rice growing and milling. His publication, A History of the American Rice Industry, 1685-1985 is the definitive monograph on this subject. He also has many other publications including a history of Texas A&M University. This collection contains mainly research material and writings on the rice industry.
