Kevin C. Meyer wrote the history of Nebraska Farm Bureau’s first seven decades, which was originally published as Seventy Years Young, An Anecdotal History of Nebraska Farm Bureau in December 1987. Cheryl Stubbendieck wrote the chapters, “Into the Eighth Decade,” using research by the late Charlotte “Chuck” Murphy.
Thanks to Barb Batie, a long time Dawson County Farm Bureau members and leader and former NFBF Chief Administrator/Secretary Treasurer Doug Gibson for their time researching, writing, and proofing this book. Tina Henderson, Paula Widholm, and Leanne Paetz spent countless hours working to update pages, laying out and highlighting the best of the best of our Nebraska Farm Bureau history, which starts with strengthening our County Farm Bureaus.
Also, thanks goes to the County Farm Bureau history chairmen, history committees, and office assistants who researched and wrote their county histories and located the photos and artwork that accompany them. The county pages are the heart of this volume and this history could not have been completed without their fine work.
