Updating History of Extension in Harrison County

Recently a booklet was found about the first 50 years of extension in Harrison County Missouri. The report titled "Excerpts From History 1919-1969," contains numerous entries that are amusing and gave some perspective about how the Extension service has impacted Harrison County. You can find some of the entries here on our website, http://extension.missouri.edu/harrison/Exthistharrison.aspx.  We wish to update the history of the extension center, which will celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2019. If you have any stories or information about the history of MU Extension in Harrison County in specific, please contact us by phone (660)425-6434 or email harrisonco@missouri.edu.
