Gorilla Researcher Has Humeston Connections
Two doctors of veterinary medicine with Wayne County connections got together at Iowa State University in Ames, recently when Wildlife Researcher James W. Foster, Bellevue, WA, class of '54, returned to his alma mater as guest speaker in the Frank K. Ramsey lecture series. Dr. Foster is the son of the the late Henry Foster, who grew up in Humeston. The grandparents, Fred and Adah Foster, were long time Humeston residents. Dr. Ramsey is no stranger to this area either. The director of the ISU Achievement Foundation and for many years head of the department of veterinary pathology grew up in northern Missouri and also has family in Wayne County.
