Norman H. Foote

Norman H. Foote

Norman H. Foote was the Head of the Agricultural Engineering Department at what is now Farmingdale State College from 1948 until his retirement in 1967. His career at Farmingdale began in 1933 when our institution was known as the State Institute Of Applied Agriculture. Mr. Foote was the son-in-law of Mr. Claude Villette Boller and our only known connection to the Boller family. Thus, it is assumed that the College Archives must have acquired Mr. Boller's Scrapbook from Mr. Foote before her retired in 1967.

Here is a biography about Mr. Foote; date unknown: Foote Biography Page 1, Foote Biography Page 2
