A successful businessman and promoter of the cooperative movement, Murray Danforth Lincoln was born on a small farm near Rayham, Massachusetts, on April 18, 1892, the second son of Minot J. and Helen S. (Andrews) Lincoln.  Educated in the Raynham public schools, he received a bachelor of science degree in 1914 from the Massachusetts Agricultural College and embarked on a career as a county agricultural agent in New London County, Connecticut. One of the first agricultural agents in New England and the first in Connecticut, Lincoln organized one of the earliest cooperative milk distribution plants in New England, at Brockton, Mass., in 1916.  In 1920, he assumed leadership in the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation, pooling farmers' purchasing power, and transformed it into one of the nation's largest farm cooperatives.  A successful businessman and promoter of the cooperative movement, Murray Danforth Lincoln was born on a small farm near Rayham, Massachusetts, on April 18, 1892, the second son of Minot J. and Helen S.
