Excerpt from The Index, 1925, Vol. 55
After considerable inquiry, Joseph S. Chamberlain; who. Was at the time studying in Berlin, Germany, was chosen and he began his work at M. A. C. In the autumn of 1909.
Who is this man Chamberlain, where did he grow up and receive both his early and advanced training? What has he accomplished and why is the class of 1925 dedicating this volume to him? These are some of the questions that naturally will be asked and to which answers are sought.
It can be said with truth that his was a goodly heritage. His grandfather, a farmer in Sharon, Connecticut, went to Ohio when William I. Chamberlain, the father of Professor Chamberlain, was four years of age. The father of Joseph was a. Graduate of Western Reserve College and while spending most of his life in practical farming, occupied several public positions of importance. Thus, from 1881 to 1887 he was Secretary of Agriculture for Ohio and from 1887 until 1890, president of the Iowa Agricultural College. Later he became editor of the Ohio Farmer as well as the National Stockman and at the time of his death was still serving in the staff of the former publication.
