Biographical Note
Rhoades earned his Bachelor and Master of Science degrees at the University of Michigan, and his doctorate at Cornell, specializing in corn genetics. He began his professional career as an associate geneticist at the United States Department of Agriculture where he did research on plant breeding from 1935-1940. In 1940 he returned to academia as an associate professor at Columbia University. In 1948 he was appointed Professor of Botany at the University of Illinois, then came to Indiana University where he chaired the Botany Department from 1958 until 1968. He was appointed Distinguished Professor Emeritus in 1974 and continued his studies in corn genetics until shortly before his death.

In addition to correspondence, the papers contain: research data and writings, career-related papers both inside and outside his academic appointments, including his work in scientific organizations and conferences and on various editorial boards, and a group of materials concerning colleague and Nobel prize winner Barbara McClintock.
