Founder of 4-H

On January 15, 1902, Mr. Albert B. Graham called to order the first meeting of a "Boys' and Girls' Agriculture Experiment Club". Before growing season 85 children from 10 to 15 years of age had already volunteered to join. One hundred years later, 286,000 Ohio youth join children from the other 49 States and 86 foreign countries in 4-H membership.

Mike Major has sculpted a youthful Graham with two of his early club members as they present their projects.

Funding provided by: Turner Foundation, Jane P. Hollenbeck, Carleton and Ruth Davidson Trust, Della Selsor Trust, Clark County 4-H and Clark County Commissioners John Detrick, James E. Sheehan and Roger D. Tackett.

Sculpture Committee members are James J. Campbell, Mark Chepp, David C. Martin, Michael G. Morris and Thomas T. Taylor.
