Acting Department Head—Research and Teaching
Alfred Conradi came to Texas A&M College in 1903 and was appointed acting department head one year later. During his time here, he developed a strong teaching program in undergraduate entomology. In 1905, he was appointed the first entomologist employed by the Texas Agricultural Experiment Station. He conducted research and published on the San Jose scale, vegetable insects, and the sweet potato borer. He resigned in 1907 and went to Clemson College, where he headed the entomology department.
