Abstract: Abstract: Royse Peak Murphy, native of Norton, Kansas and survivor of the Dust Bowl experience, the Great Depression, then World War II, joined the Cornell Faculty in 1946. His main focus has been plant breeding, releasing many new crop varieties and supervising graduate studies for 21 Ph.D. students and 12 Master of Science students. His international work was extensive. He is an exemplary member of the Cornell University Faculty and served Cornell as a Department Head, Dean of the University Faculty (1964-67) and as a faculty member serving on the Board of Trustees. As has been characteristic of Murph since his ‘retirement’ 32 years ago and despite his recent physical adversities, he has maintained a vigorous devotion to and love for plant breeding – as witnessed by his participation in this video. Interviewed by plant breeder colleague, Donald R. Viands, he discusses his recollections of the plant breeding department at Cornell, supplementing his book on that subject, Evolution of Plant Breeding at Cornell University (http://dspace.library.cornell.edu/handle/1813/23087). Running time: 41 minutes. A biographical sketch by Lee B. Kass, that was presented at the celebration of his 90th birthday, is also included.
Description: QuickTime videos of the interview use H.264 compression. One set is for Apple TV and the other is formatted for the iPhone (and QuickTime Player).
