The Kansas State Board of Agriculture turned 50 years old in 1921.  To mark the anniversary, Board Secretary, J. C. Mohler, wrote up a short history of the Board and its accomplishments.  The piece was presented at the 1921 Annual Meeting of the Board and transcribed for posterity in the March 1921 Report of the Kansas State Board of Agriculture.  You can read the text of the presentation at the KGI Online Library here:
