Down on the Farm: Uncle Burnett
My great-uncle Burnett Bergeson passed away in Reno, Nev., last week at the ripe old age of 95.
A member of the Minnesota House of Representatives from 1954-1962, Uncle Burnett was an DFLer in the Hubert Humphery-Orville Freeman tradition.
Uncle Burnett later worked under Secretary of Agriculture Orville Freeman in the USDA during the administrations of Presidents Kennedy and Johnson.
