Program Description

Event Details

In this one-act play based on the award-winning book of the same name by Senator John C. Culver and John Hyde, actor Tom Milligan portrays Henry A. Wallace, the agricultural innovator and founder of Pioneer Hi-Bred seed corn company who became US Secretary of Agriculture and later Vice President under Franklin Roosevelt.  Admired by many and later branded as a Socialist during his controversial 1948 campaign for presidency, Wallace always held out a vision for the future.
