Between 1979-1982, Ed Nichols served as the U.S. Agricultural Counselor to Italy. Based in Rome, he engaged in successful deliberations with the Italian Minister of Agriculture. The Italian President decorated him in 1982 as Commendatore, a high Italian honorific title, for his success in advancing U.S.-Italian trade relations. Enjoy some mementos from Nichols’ time in Italy! #TravelTuesday #EdNichols #Rome #Italy #USDepartmentofAgriculture #USDA #ForeignAgriculturalService #Archives #PoageLibrary #BCPM at Baylor Collections of Political Materials

Former diplomat Ed Nichols worked for the USDA, 1977-1978, as Assistant to the Deputy Secretary. In this role, he was able to travel to China to assist in normalization of trade relations. He also had a little fun while in China: his friend, Tom Angott, recorded a 124 page document on the trip, and noted that Nichols was “very charmed with the different varieties of food, particularly…the sea moss” at a luncheon at the Imperial Palace. How perfect for #TravelTuesday! #EdNichols #China #USDepartmentofAgriculture #USDA #Archives #PoageLibrary #BCPM at Baylor Collections of Political Materials

Take me out to the ball game! At Poage Library, we have the papers of former Representative Alan Steelman, including his baseball cards from the 1974 Congressional Baseball game. Steelman was a Republican from Texas, serving the TX 5th District, 1973-1977. #ArchivesHashtagParty #ArchivesGameNight #AlanSteelman #Baseball #PoageLibrary #BCPM at Baylor Collections of Political Materials

There is an interesting story behind the constituent card chosen for the Congressional Collection collage on the #PoageLibrary homepage. Our archivist @mary_goolsby explained, “Although I married into the family after Mr. Hampel died, my mother-in-law remembers Mr. Poage coming to their house for dinner often. Her father was the manager of the McLennan County Electric Co-Operative and Mr. Poage was instrumental in helping him bring power to rural areas. It is an awesome family connection knowing my grandfather-in-law was great friends with Mr. Poage.” at Baylor Collections of Political Materials

During the month of October, we will spend some time highlighting the diplomatic papers of Ed Nichols and his various travel experiences. Between 1971-1977, Nichols was Assistant Commissioner of Agriculture for Texas and involved with the Japan-Texas Association Conference. As such, he was able to travel to Japan!

It's #TravelTuesday! Here we find Mr. Poage with some children in Purnia, Bihar, India. According to his travel diary, he spent time in India in December of 1966, making comments on the state of agriculture. In Purnia, he noted that the region rains and floods so much that the river had been known as the "River of Sorrows." He thought they were doing well agriculturally, but recommended that they needed better irrigation. #MrAgriculture #PoageLibrary #BCPM #archives #Poage at Baylor Collections of Political Materials
