Biographical NoteReturn to Top

Elvin Albert Duerst (born 1915) was an international agricultural economist with government and private contract positions in Asia, Latin America and the Middle East.  Born in McMinnville, Oregon, he attended Linfield College (1932-1935), graduated from Oregon State College in 1937 with a degree in agricultural economics, and earned a master's degree in agricultural economics from the University of Illinois in 1939.  Duerst was involved with the Oregon chapter of the Future Farmers of America during high school and college.  Additionally, he completed post-graduate work in economics at American University and Johns Hopkins University.

After earning his master’s degree, Duerst joined the Montana Extension Service as a county agent from 1940 to 1945.  After World War II, he began work with the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration (UNRRA) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) on agricultural relief in China.  From 1948 until his retirement in 1966, Duerst held several agricultural economist and program officer positions with international aid agencies including the Institute of Inter-American Affairs (IIAA) in Paraguay and Brazil, the International Cooperation Administration (ICA) in Peru and El Salvador, and the Agency for International Development (USAID) in El Salvador.  In the decade following his retirement, Duerst served as a consultant on agricultural and economic development projects, including advising the Central Treaty Organization (CENTO) on the Trans-Asian Railway, and community development projects in Nicaragua, the Philippines and Costa Rica.  In 1967, Duerst joined the Stanford Research Institute (SRI) as an economic consultant and advised on agricultural planning and transportation projects in Bolivia, Honduras, and Saudi Arabia.  From 1975-1979, Duerst served as a consultant to the Local Industrial Development Department of the Arabian American Oil Company (ARAMCO) in Saudi Arabia.

Duerst's work encompassed a wide variety of tasks and objectives. While employed by UNRRA, FAO, and the IIAA, he was primarily responsible for advising local farmers on modern agricultural techniques and helping to move rural communities beyond subsistence farming. However, as his career progressed, he became increasingly involved developing policies for national economic growth, and developed expertise in commodities transportation and infrastructure development. Many of these projects impacted whole countries and even, in the case of CENTO, international regions.

Duerst died in May 2006 in McMinnville, Oregon.
