(1875-1940)Asbury Francis Lever served in Congress, 1901-1919. On May 8, 1914, the Smith-Lever Act, introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives by Lever, was signed into law, providing for cooperative agricultural extension services to be administered by land-grant colleges. Clemson, a land-grant institution founded in 1889, has such a service. Rep. Lever is buried here on Cemetery Hill.
