In memory of former FAFS Dean John Louis Fischer

FAFS mourns the loss of Dr. John Louis Fischer, FAFS Dean from 1978-1980 who passed away October 23, 2017. Dr. Fischer is remembered by FAFS as a caring, loving, generous, intelligent human being: one who always put his family, whether by blood or by community identity, above all else.

Dr. Fischer earned his bachelor’s (1946) and master’s (1950) degrees from Oklahoma A&M University and received his PhD (1955) from the University of Wisconsin in agricultural economics. Strongly committed to broad access to higher education, Dr. John was a faculty member at several US universities.

His significant international career included USAID (Ethiopia), advising on agriculture and rural development (Turkey), Executive Director of the Consortium for International Development, and advising the Ministry of Agriculture in Swaziland regarding agricultural policy.​​
