"The work of the county agent is not the work of a revivalist nor that
of a missionary. It is the work of a man among men whose one object
must be to do the greatest good to the greatest number.
"The sun has long risen in the east and set in the west. Why change
that? But to help make it shine a little brighter in the hearts of the
American farmers is the county agricultural agent's mission."
From, the first annual report of the first
Minnesota County Agent—Frank F. Marshall
