The late J. E. Boog-Scott was widely known in all sections of Texas, but Godley was his home during his later life.  He was elected as president of the association first 1909 and again in 1913 and re-elected in 1914.  For a number of years he was in the cattle business near Coleman.  That was before there were any 4-H club boys, but he and some of his Coleman friends sponsored a project somewhat similar to the present day 4-H Club work.  He urged the boys to feed cattle and then to further interest in such work he brought wagon loads of toys to the Fort Worth show.
He was one of a group of men that took several cars of cattle to Mexico and after having them on display in Mexico he spent considerable time in disposing of the cattle.  This brought about better relations between the cattlemen of Mexico and the cattlemen of Texas.  It made it easier for the officials of the two areas to better understand the needs of their neighbors.

The Texas Hereford Association made Boog-Scott and John P. Lee honorary life members of the association without the payment of annual dues. They were the only two men ever to receive this recognition.  J. E. Boog-Scott, Jr., took over the family ranch after the death of his father.
