Description:
Professor Todd (1921-1991) was an extension professor of plant pathology at North Carolina State University and a North Carolina native. "He was known as 'Mr. Tobacco' to researchers, farmers, and politicians across North Carolina and was lauded for his work as a plant pathologist for his ability to turn the science of growing a bug-free tobacco leaf into workable, money-saving practices for tobacco growers" (N&O, March 4, 1991). Among his many honors are Man of the Year from the Progressive Farmer (1972), Tar Heel of the Week, Raleigh News and Observer (1977), and Fellow of the American Phytopathological Society (1978).
