Richard P. Haynes

Richard P. Haynes, scholar, visionary, mentor and friend, died this past summer. Richard was responsible for initiating the national conversations that led to the creation of the Agriculture, Food and Human Values Society and its journal, Agriculture and Human Values.  Richard served as executive secretary of AFHVS (originally called AHVS) from its founding in 1986 until 2013. He was also the editor-in-chief of Agriculture and Human Values from its inception in 1984 until 2004. His vision and his dedication to bringing ethical issues into the study and practice of agriculture and the food system have captured the hearts and minds of literally thousands of scholars, nationally and internationally.
