His role in the evolution of USDA’s programs that now feed millions of Americans should not be understated. There is much more to learn and enjoy in this very readable journey of a very productive life. – John E. Lee, Jr., Retired Administrator and Professor Emeritus

As we learned from Dr. Stephen J. Hiemstra, life is a journey where we travel from moment to moment, from research to education, from government to university, from discovery to discovery.  – Hailin Qu, Professor, Oklahoma State University

Dr. Hiemstra was a brilliant thinker, problem solver, patient with those who didn’t have his intellect, and a man of God. He was a statesman, leader, and, more importantly, my friend.                                                                                                                    – Dr. Carl A. Boger Jr., Professor, University of Houston
