Edwin Howard Hill was known to local Dallas county folks as “Howard”. In business he went by “E. Howard Hill”. Howard had three daughters who were active 4-H members in Dallas County, but his involvement reached far beyond the county level. Howard was one of the founders of the State 4-H Foundation. He was vice-chair of the foundation at a time when the president of ISU filled the role of chair. Under Howard’s leadership, this committee bought the grounds for the 4-H Education and Natural Resource Center near Madrid. Howard also used his leadership skills as head of the Iowa Farm Bureau.
