Historical Note

The Michigan 4-H Foundation was founded in 1952 by Arne G. Kettunen, on the 50th anniversary of 4-H. It promotes youth leadership at the county and state levels and relies heavily on volunteers to work with the children in the program. In 1954, the Foundation purchased in Tustin, Michigan 140 acres and led the fundraiser to construct “Camp Kett”, the Kettunen Center. The center opened in 1961. In 1993, the Foundation partnered with Michigan State University to create the Michigan 4-H Children’s Garden. In 2003, an indoor garden was added.

The Foundation is also involved with other learning opportunities for youth. These include 4-H Proud Equestrians Program, FOLKPATTERNS (Cultural Heritage Program), SPACES, and other environmental and character education programs.

Another report included here is the Junior Livestock Show report for the period 1965 – 1968 with photographs. Other records are 4-H histories (national, state, and county), plans of work (1921 – 1955), clippings and press releases, state fair materials (1924 – 1969), state service club records (1928 – 1974), and statistics of youth enrollment (1965 – 1972).
