Kling L. Anderson assumed leadership of the pasture management program in the agronomy department in 1938 and remained on the faculty at K-State over the next 29 years, interrupted by two years absence to complete his doctorate at the University of Nebraska and as a Fulbright fellow to New Zealand. Anderson provided research that was extremely important to the ranching industry, not only in Kansas, but worldwide.
The Kling L. Anderson Lectureship was established to enhance training in range and forage management at K-State by providing the opportunity for students and faculty to benefit from interaction with outstanding scholars. The lectures and seminars provided through this program also will perpetuate and honor the name of Kling L. Anderson and commemorate his many years of outstanding service to K-State, the people of the state of Kansas and the range management profession worldwide. His contact with students and faculty on the campus has made a lasting impact, enhancing the lives and careers of those fortunate enough to have known him.
