  • One compact disc. Stone served as emcee. Martin interviewed Conner. Conner was Florida Commissioner of Agriculture from 1960 to 1990. Born in Starke, Florida on 17 December 1928, Doyle Conner's service in Florida government began in 1950 when he was elected to Florida's House of Representatives while a sophomore at the University of Florida working towards his Bachelor of Science degree in agriculture. In 1956, Conner was named Speaker of the House, the youngest person to ever serve in that capacity. He was first elected Commissioner of Agriculture in 1960, and was re-elected commissioner for the next seven elections. Conner retired from that office in 1990. Here Conner discusses the issues he dealt while Commissioner and the state of Florida agriculture in 2006.
