Jimmy Carter's FFA jacket donated to the Smithsonian

A Future Farmers of America (FFA) jacket owned by former US president Jimmy Carter has been accepted into the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History.

Carter said in a speech in 1979: "The first organisation I belonged to was a Baptist church; the second organisation was the FFA."

He took over his family's peanut farm in Georgia in 1953, after the death of his father, Earl, and after a rocky few years transformed it into a successful business.
