A Pioneer in the Lab, and on the Land
Clemmons Family Farm
In 1962, when Jackson J. W. Clemmons, Ph.D., M.D., moved to Vermont to join the UVM Department of Pathology, he was only the second African American on the College of Medicine faculty, and the first to stay for any length of time. Early on, a large farmhouse for sale in the town of Charlotte caught his eye. Now the Clemmons Family Farm is a treasured cultural institution. Learn more about the farm through their video storytelling channel.
