The World Food Prize Foundation extends its condolences to the family of Senator John Culver


On behalf of our Chairman John Ruan III and all of us at the World Food Prize Foundation, I extend our most heartfelt condolences to the family of Senator John Culver on his passing. Senator Culver was a great friend of our Foundation and we were pleased to have honored him together with Representative Jim Leach at our bi-partisan Hoover-Wallace Dinner in Iowa City in 2008.

Senator Culver was also featured during the World Food Prize Borlaug Dialogue International Symposium, when he made a fascinating presentation on the legacy of Henry A. Wallace, whom the Senator had profiled in his biography American Dreamer.  

-Amb. Kenneth M. Quinn

Ambassador Quinn also wishes to express great personal appreciation for the Senator. While the Ambassador was a young college student from Dubuque, then a Congressman, Culver made significant efforts to assist him in applying to enter the U.S. Foreign Service, where he would have a 32-year career as an American diplomat.
