How was the Kerr Center created?

The Kerr Foundation was established in 1965 from the estate of Senator Robert S. Kerr. The agricultural division of that entity served farmers and ranchers until 1985. In that year, the Kerr Foundation was separated into four new foundations. The “ag division” became the Kerr Center for Sustainable Agriculture, continuing and expanding upon its primary work of educational outreach to Oklahoma farmers and ranchers.
