Historical Note

In 1951, the American Association of Agricultural College Editors (AAACE) began to investigate establishing a project for professional improvement in the distribution of agricultural information. Groups such as the Extension Committee on Organization and Policy, Experiment Station Committee on Organization and Policy, and National Association of Radio Farm Directors worked with the W.K. Kellogg Foundation to secure funding to develop a program for applying principles of the newly developing science of communications for wider dissemination of information in agriculture and home economics. Michigan State College (now University) was selected by the Executive Committee as the site for the project.
