10-J, 10-M

Ten random things: May 12

Ten state commissioners of agriculture or equivalents thereof:

  1. Tommy Irvin, Georgia Commissioner of Agriculture
  2. Ron Sparks, Alabama Commissioner of Agriculture
  3. Dr. Jon Hagler, Missouri Director of Agriculture
  4. Seth Bradstreet, Maine Commissioner of Agriculture
  5. A. G. Kawamura, California Secretary of Food and Agriculture
  6. Richard Bell, Arkansas Secretary of Agriculture
  7. Don Koivisto, Michigan Director of the Department of Agriculture
  8. Bill Northey, Iowa Secretary of Agriculture
  9. Joseph M. Kelsay, Indiana Director of the Department of Agriculture
  10. Leonard M. Blackham, Utah Commissioner of Agriculture

My original idea was to do a list of ten secretaries of agriculture or equivalents thereof, but as you can see only three of the states I chose have secretaries of agriculture, so I renamed it.

Incidentally, I chose these ten states because their abbreviations can be found within the phrase "The Renwick Gallery of the National Museum of American Art, Smithsonian Institution," a poster from which happens to be hanging on the wall opposite me.
