The Ohio State University
Drs. Marilyn R. Spiegel and the late Jo M. Jones began work on Memories and Milestones of Ohio State University Extension in 2004, personally interviewing more than 100 former and current OSU Extension professionals and surveying a variety of other Extension professionals about their career experiences.
Drs. Charles W. Lifer, Linda M. Kutilek, and Nikki L. Conklin, OSU Extension emeriti, served as the editorial team in 2013 to finish the project. The historical information and personal stories Marilyn and Jo collected were updated, expanded and enriched with input from the editorial team, the OSU Extension assistant directors, and the leaders of our Extension professional organizations.
