History

As part of our 100th year Anniversary Celebration, we have many ETAA historical photos that we are happy to share online. We want our current members to appreciate these past members and events, and where their hard work has led us today. Please take some time to look over these photos and stories, and keep checking back as we add more. Thank you to all who have made the ETAA so great over the years!

Share your memories!

If you or your family have any historical photos or stories that you would like added to our website, please email them to us.

Serving Breeders Since

For a small organization, East Tennessee Angus Association has made a large impact on the American Angus Association.

From its ranks have risen two national leaders Joe Keefauver, who served as 1962 American Angus Association president, and Andy Starr, 1992 president. Serving on the Association Board of Directors have been Dr. Shelby Turner and currently Stan Watts, Murfreesboro. John Crouch, Association director of performance programs and a native of Jonesboro, Tenn., was also active in ETAA. Perhaps the most dedicated member was H.R. Duncan, a University of Tennessee animal science professor, Angus breeder, performance pioneer and ETAA leader.
