A. O. Duncan


Mr. Amon O. Duncan was born in Carroll County Georgia in 1904. He attended Mt. Zion Seminary and received his Bachelor of Science and Masters of Education degrees from the University of Georgia. Mr. Duncan began his teaching career in 1929 at Pelham High School where he served for eight years.

In 1937 he joined the Teacher Education Program at the University of Georgia. He was placed in charge of preparing teaching materials for the Vocational Agriculture schools of the state. After World War II he helped prepare teachers for the Veterans Farm Training Program. His main emphasis, however, continued to be teaching material development. In 1941, Mr. Duncan co-authored a book "Swine Production in the South," and in 1942 he wrote "Food Processing."

A.O. Duncan was recognized as a leader in his field. The Agriculture Alumni Association of the University of Georgia presented him with the Distinguished Faculty Award in 1969. In recognition for his leadership in developing a record book for Vocational Agriculture used throughout the nation, the National Association of FFA presented to Mr. Duncan the Distinguished Service Award in 1966.

Mr. Duncan retired in 1969 and died in February 1972 after a short illness. He served the Vocational Agriculture profession for forty years.
