Kittredge-Wilson Lecture: Bruce Ragsdale

Bruce Ragsdale

Fellow, Georgian Papers Programme
The Farmers George: Washington, the King, and the Agricultural Landscape

Inspired by the British literature of agricultural improvement, George Washington and King George III simultaneously undertook experimental agricultural projects that they hoped would serve as a model for the farmers of their respective nations. Drawing on documents in the Royal Collections and on Washington’s own surveys of his farms, this lecture will explore how these two national leaders embodied the ideals of agricultural innovation shared by wealthy landowners on both sides of the Atlantic.
