NDSU’s Flax Promoter — Dr. Jack Carter Dies, Sept. 11

Dr. Jack Carter, the long-time promoter/pioneer of new, healthful uses for flax, and long-time administrator in the North Dakota State University plant sciences departments, died on Sunday, Sept. 11, 2011, NDSU says.

Carter was an energetic mind and was a thoughtful commentator on many things, even when they weren’t popular. He is one who is a clear-headed promoter of the state’s farmers, but also has been a critic of some things that farmers here have promoted, including ethanol. Agree or disagree, Jack was one of the greatest local examples of the Greatest Generation.
