A lesson from Uncle Burnett

Email

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.
