(1881 - 1971)

In 1901, as a country school teacher, Jessie Field created practical farm and home courses for her students as part of the regular curriculum. Later, as superintendent of Page County schools, she expanded these clubs and camps to include all rural students. By 1912, she used the 3H and later the 4H emblem, and she is known as one of the earliest 4H leaders in the United States. As teacher, superintendent, author, and National YMCA Secretary for Rural Work, Mrs. Shambaugh pioneered one of the greatest youth movements of modern times.
