Sadly, ALHFAM and the greater museum and agricultural communities have lost
another influential and beloved friend. Darwin Kelsey, a Cooperstown
graduate and ALHFAM founder (and our second president) passed away on
Saturday. Among many other accomplishments, Darwin played a key role in
creating a historical agriculture program at Old Sturbridge Village,
developing the innovative Lake Farm Park in Ohio, and more recently promoting
local agriculture by founding the Countryside Conservancy which promotes
farmers' markets. He will be greatly missed.
Darwin's obituary can be found here.
