Collection Description

Historical Note

Walter Scott Brown was born on February 1, 1889 in Towns County, Georgia and died on December 5, 1965 in Athens, Georgia. Graduating from the University of Georgia in 1917 with a B.S.A. degree, he worked in some capacity of the agricultural field for more than 48 years, 37 of which were with the Cooperative Extension Service.

"Mr. Brown influenced the commissioners of 40 counties in southeast Georgia to join with the Extension Service in employing county agents. He became the third Director of Extension in [January] 1937. In the World War II era, he led the Extension Service into and through new program emphases of increasing rather than decreasing production. From the end of the war until his retirement in 1954, he directed Extensions' educational program to gear up for peace and use the flow of new technology to farms. He was named Progressive Farmer's Man of the Year, served as the first chairman of the National 4-H Foundation, chairman of the Georgia 4-H Foundation and chairman of the State Extension Directors, and chairman of the state Conservation Committee"

In 1983 he was posthumously inducted into the Georgia Agricultural Hall of Fame.
