There was a Hungerford in the first graduating class of Iowa State University. One of my grandfathers was a former Iowa College president, founder of Blue Cross, president of one of Iowa's larger hospitals and held a doctorate in Humanities. My other grandfather was a farmer and all of his five sons and two daughters were either educators or professors or farmers or combinations thereof. With these roots, I have a feeling of pride in my heritage, a deep-seated affection for the State of Iowa and an unshakable belief in the value of science and education.
