Leaders of the National Agricultural Center and Hall of Fame in Bonner Springs, Kansas, announced this week the election of three ag leaders into its Hall of Fame.

Former Kansas Senator Robert J. Dole, Order of Patrons of Husbandry founder Oliver Hudson Kelley and ag chemist Justus von Liebig will be recognized for their achievements in and contributions to agriculture during the Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on Friday, October 27.

The electees will join 35 prominent inductees already enshrined in the Hall of Fame. Drawn from diverse fields and geographic areas, members of the Hall of Fame must have made a contribution to the advancement of agriculture that is of national or international significance. Past inductees include Thomas Jefferson, George Washington Carver and John Deere. Their historical accomplishments to farming parallel the history of our country and serve as a reminder of how significant agriculture is in our culture.

The National Agricultural Center and Hall of Fame, commonly known as the Ag Hall of Fame, was issued a federal charter by an act of the 86th Congress. Signed by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1960, this rare federal charter charged the Ag Hall of Fame to serve as the national museum of agriculture and as a memorial to agricultural leaders.
