Pioneer Agricultural Journalists Exhibit

This exhibit provides a sampling of early agricultural editors, focusing on the 15 journalists William Edward Ogilvie writes about in Pioneering Agricultural Journalists: Brief Biographical Sketches of Some of the Early Editors in the Field of Agricultural Journalism.

These pioneering agricultural journalists have used their publications to disseminate agrarian and farming knowledge and to expand the field. You can also visit the Agricultural Communications Documentation Center by appointment to get an up-close look some of the early Ag Comm journals mentioned in the exhibit (and others!) in the Center’s Volume 1 Number 1 Collection.
