Scholarship To Honor Clutter Family

KSCB News - February 17, 2010 12:00 am

A scholarship is being offered to honor

one of the victims of a southwest Kansas killing that was

chronicled in Truman Capote’s novel “In Cold Blood.”

The Herb Clutter Memorial Scholarship is named for the father of

a family that was killed in 1959 at their Holcomb farmhouse.

Clutter was a farming leader who encouraged wheat research. Each

year, $500 will be awarded to one incoming freshman from Kansas who

is pursuing a career in agriculture.

The scholarship was created last year by the Kansas Wheat

Research Foundation, which is administered by the Kansas

Association of Wheat Growers.

Scholarship applications are due April 15.
