Extension agents have been employed in East Baton Rouge Parish intermittently since 1915. Since 1945, two agents have been continuously employed. East Baton Rouge Parish is an industrial parish with well-balanced agriculture industry. Since World War II, the percentage of 4-H club members living on farms have rapidly declined and the percentage of 4-H clubs members from urban areas and rural non-farm areas have increased. At the same time, total 4-H club enrollment went up steadily to peak of 2,000 members in 1957, declined to 1,500 members in 1960, and has remained about the same to the present time.
