About Roy D. Hunter

Roy Deneale Hunter was born in Carson City, Nevada on April 12, 1873. He studied at the University of Wisconsin and Massachusetts State College. Hunter came to New Hampshire in 1892 as general manager of the Sullivan Machinery Company. In 1914 he established a dairy farm in West Claremont and then became interested and active in education and the progress of agriculture. He held offices on the Boards of the Claremont School, Eastern Farmers' Exchange, Sullivan County Farm Bureau and the Farm Bureau Federation. On June 14, 1916, Governor Rolland H. Spaulding appointed Hunter to the Board of Trustees of the University of New Hampshire. From 1931 until his death, Hunter served a President of the Board of Trustees. Following the deaths of both President Lewis and President Englehardt, Hunter acted as Chief Executive Officer of the University. In 1937, the University gave him the honorary degree of Doctor of Laws. Hunter died on November 14, 1944 at his home in West Claremont.
