Glenn Klein talks about the 1959 Wagon Trek!

Glenn Arthur Klein, 84, of Corvallis died on Wednesday, Aug. 8, 2012. Klein retired from OSU in 1990 after 40 years of State 4-H Extension Specialist at Oregon State University, but he continued to be involved with campus activities, volunteering on special committees.

He also loved to talk about being a part of the leadership team for a special 1959 4-H Wagon Trek from Jacksonville to Corvallis to celebrate the Oregon Centennial — including visiting us for Oregon Archives Month in 2009.
