Kansas 1st District Congressman Tracey Mann recognized late Kansas State University ag economics professor Dr. Barry Flinchbaugh on the House floor Wednesday.
Representative Mann says he was one of the 5,000 students who took Flinchbaugh’s class at K-State, the best class he remembers taking.
Mann says Flinchbaugh’s expertise led him to meet every president from Harry Truman to George W. Bush.
Flinchbaugh’s impact on Kansas agricultural policy extended several decades and he was well respected by those who knew him.
Flinchbaugh died last November at age 78. A celebration of life for Dr. Flinchbaugh will take place at 9:30 a.m. Friday on the Johnson Terrace at the K-State Alumni Center. Sen Jerry Moran and former Sen. Pat Roberts will speak at the event.
