Dr Walter J. Armbruster is the retired long-serving Secretary/Treasurer of the International Association of Agricultural Economists (IAAE). He earned his bachelor’s (1962) and master’s (1964) degrees in Agricultural Economics from Purdue and a doctorate in Agricultural Economics from Oregon State University (1970). He is currently Managing Director of the Farm Foundation. Here are some of his thoughts on education, career, and life: On his early years: “I grew up on a small farm near Lawrenceburg in southern Indiana. We didn’t earn a living on the farm, but we learned the work ethic by raising enough animals to feed ourselves and to take to market, and by growing feed and grain for the animals and tending a huge garden. I spent many hours hunting and fishing and pursuing other outdoor activities, and that background gave me an appreciation for agriculture and for the environment.” 

“The most rewarding thing about my work is the opportunity to interact with national and international agricultural leaders in both public and private sectors. The Farm Foundation serves as a catalyst, bringing a lot of people together to talk about various topics. I meet a lot of interesting people that way.” Read more...
