Rooted in Tradition
Huntington University holds a unique role in the legacy of agricultural education in Indiana. Under the leadership of Dr. Fred Loew, the university taught a robust agriculture curriculum in the early 20th century. Dr. Loew served as the first Agricultural Agent for Huntington County and directed the regional Purdue Experiment Station. According to historical records and University archives, he is credited with introducing soybeans to Northeast Indiana farming.
