Biographical Sketch

Arthur "Art" James Foster (November 24, 1918-December 24, 2010) was born in Hutchinson, Kansas, the son of Arthur Leslie and Susan Armstrong Foster. However, at the age of 6 months, following the death of his mother during the "Spanish flu" epidemic, he became part of the family of his aunt and uncle, Agnes and Clyde Foster, who lived in Stratford, Texas with their three sons, Sheldon, John, and Newton.

Art attended Texas Technological College (now Texas Tech University) and earned a B.A. in Textile Engineering in 1939. During his college years, he was one of the first Saddle Tramps and a member of Phi Psi, the national honorary textile organization. After graduation, he worked in the textile industry in Memphis, Tennessee and Waco/McKinney, Texas. On December 21, 1940, Art married his high school sweetheart, Ada Wre Handlin (?-2009).

During August 1942, the family returned to Lubbock where he taught in the Texas Tech University Textile Department and Draughan's Business College. In March 1944, he opened Plains Seed and Delinting Company in Lubbock and became a pioneer in the cottonseed delinting industry. Later he was instrumental in helping found the American Cottonseed Delinting Association. In addition to his agribusiness activities, Art was a Life Time Mason and active in the Episcopal Church where he contributed in numerous local and regional capacities. He loved golf, traveling the world with Ada Wre, and flying his Bonanza.
