Frank Graham — “Mr. 4-H”
April 9, 1920 – September 20, 2013
When the Missouri 4-H Foundation was established in 1949, Frank Graham was there, and he was involved with the foundation until his death. Frank was a National 4-H Hall of Fame laureate; he devoted his life to helping others; and exemplified the Heart in the 4-H Clover. For his generous spirit and practical wisdom, the Missouri 4-H Foundation was honored to induct Frank Graham into the Missouri 4 Hall of Fame in 2011.
