College News and Departmenal Notes: Professor Dodge Becomes County Agent Leader
by Departmental notes - 1919
Richard E. Dodge, emeritus professor of geography in Teachers College, was appointed last fall assistant county agent leader by the States Relations Service of the Department of Agriculture. In his new work Professor Dodge has headquarters at Storrs, Connecticut. Professor Dodge is assisting in the development of the agricultural program in the eight counties of the state of Connecticut by working with the county agricultural agents and their agricultural and executive committees. Incident to this he has many administrative problems dealing with publicity, finance, official reports to the United States Department of Agriculture, etc., that require constant attention. While there are many features of the work in each county that are unique to the county, there are many ways in which the work in several parts of the state has common factors. Professor Dodge, therefore, is interested in keeping closely in touch with activities in all parts of the state in order that there may be a wider use of experience that has proved worth while in given localities. He finds that the work requires much time away from home and places him in touch with many of the better farmers and agricultural leaders of the state.
