This is an account of how the Cooperative Extension Services of four land-grant institutions—the University of Arkansas. Cornell University, Iowa State University, and Pennsylvania State University—undertook to educate the public of their states on some of the most important local problems. All four institutions have in common the traditions of the land-grant system; but the regions they serve differ greatly in economics, politics and cultural forms. All four states used the same method of reaching the public, with only minor adaptations to local circumstances. All achieved remarkable success. Thus in this venture these universities have not only served their states well but have added a new dimension to land-grant education, one that educators throughout the country may well find of interest.
