Given the Success of Corn Clubs for North Carolina Boys, Pig Clubs Will Be Begun, 1914

“McVein Heads “Pig Club” Movement” from the Aug. 13, 1914, issue of The High Point Review. These pig and corn clubs were forerunners of 4-H Clubs.

C.L. McVein, late of the Pennsylvania State College, has been placed at the head of the “Pig Club” movement among the farmer boys of North Carolina under the direction of the North Carolina experiment station and the Federal government. He is to begin this work very soon. This new division of work will be carried on much as the corn clubs are now being conducted.
