Oral history; interview with Dr. Keith Remy, April 24, 2012, Mitchell Memorial Library, Mississippi State University. Dr. Remy was born in 1933 in Waterloo, Iowa, and completed his Bachelor's degree at Iowa State University in 1955. He served in the United States Air Force from 1955 to 1958. From 1959 to 1966, he was the Associate Editor of Wallace's Farmer magazine, in Des Moines, Iowa. Then, in the years spanning 1966 to 1985, he was an Instructor, Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, and then Professor in Agriculture Education at The Ohio State University. In 1985, he first came to Mississippi State as the Department Head of MAFES (Mississippi Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station) Editorial in the Lloyd-Ricks Building. When the three Division units - MAFES, Extension, and the Veterinary College - combined their communication departments in 1989, Remy moved from Lloyd-Ricks into the Bost Extension Center and became a Senior Editor in the newly-formed Office of Agricultural Communications, where he worked until his retirement in June of 1997. In this interview, Remy discusses the makeup of MAFES Editorial, the merger of the three Division Information units into one office, and working with some of MSU's past and present leaders in the Lloyd-Ricks Building.
