Creator Note:

Following wartime service in the Army Air Corps, Dr. Darl Snyder completed his undergraduate degree in agriculture at Iowa State University in 1947. After work in the agricultural chemical industry, he turned to academe in 1959, assuming the post of Director of Development and Public Relations at Elmhurst College in Elmhurst, Illinois. At the same time he assumed the post of National Secretary, Treasurer and Editor with the FarmHouse Fraternity. In 1969 he completed a Masters in Educational Administration at the University of Chicago.

That same year he joined the staff of the University of Georgia’s Rural Development Center, being established in Tifton, Georgia. After helping to bring the RDC’s plans to reality, Dr. Snyder assumed the post of RDC Director and Assistant Director of Cooperative Extension in 1971. In 1975 he was recruited to come to Athens to serve in the new post of Director of International Programs in Agriculture, becoming Director of International Programs in 1977. In 1976 Dr. Snyder earned his PhD in Education from North Carolina State University. From 1990 until his retirement in 1992 he served as Associate Vice President for Public Services & Outreach and as Director of International Development.

From 1953 to her death in 2007, Dr. Snyder’s partner in his work was his wife, Florence Snyder, who held undergraduate and masters degrees from the University and served as a speech therapist in the Home Health program at St. Mary's Hospital in Athens.

Following retirement, the Snyders continued their activity in international development, particularly with work in the African country of Burkina Faso, home of the ASUDEC, Africa’s Sustainable Development Council. On campus they have been particularly active with the African Studies Institute which organizes the annual Darl Snyder Lecture on Africa and whose students are sponsored in studies abroad by the Darl Snyder Foundation.

Scope and Content Note:

The collection richly represents the contributions of the Snyders and their daughter, Cherie, through papers, publications, awards, artifacts and images. In addition to documenting their work, many of the materials offer a unique view of life in contemporary Africa and the efforts of agricultural extension and development in the Northwestern part of that continent.

Many of the artifacts were created by artisans from around the world, from Tifton to Ouagadougou, and given to the Snyders in thanks for their efforts promoting international development projects. These materials were displayed in conjunction the Darl Snyder Lecture in 2004. At that time the Snyders toured the exhibit, with Dr. Lioba Moshi, Director of the UGA African Studies Institutes. A transcription of their remarks regarding the significance or history of various artifacts can be found in folder 20 of box 1. In addition we have placed their comments with the description of items in the list below, identifying the speaker by their initials, D.S. or F.S. for Darl or Florence Snyder.
