For several years he has written a weekly newspaper column on local history for the Minden Press-Herald. He has published ten books on local history. In 2018, Agan was selected as Minden’s Man of the Year by the Minden Lions Club in 2018.

 The museum will have two of his latest books projects on hand for purchase and signing.
