Biographical Information

Professor K. W. Kiltz was a member of the Agricultural Education staff at Purdue University for over thirty-four years. He retired in June 1963, after more than three decades of service to the Future Farmers of America as State Executive Secretary-Treasurer.

Professor Kiltz's experiences as a teacher and educator included itinerant teacher training, helping teach the undergraduate special methods course, and teaching a graduate course concerning part-time and evening classes in agriculture.

Under his guidance and leadership the State FFA Association grew from 20 chapters and 273 members to 314 chapters and about 10,000 members. The state convention of the Indiana Association of FFA grew from 96 to nearly 1800 participants in the annual event. Professor Kiltz had a part in introducing new ideas to Indiana FFA members. Among these were the State Officer Tour, State FFA Band, and State FFA Chorus.
