Biographical Note

Sanford H. Fulton, born in 1874, graduated from Michigan Agricultural College (now Michigan State University) in 1897 with a B.S. degree in agriculture. In 1922-1923, Fulton traveled west to study the life of his grandfather, William Fulton (September 29, 1809 - May 9, 1889). Fulton's tuberculosis condition worsened as a result of his travels and he returned to his home in West Virginia. He died in 1924, shortly after his return.
