Item no. 28289
Arkansas farmers building a cooperative syrup mill on Farm Security Administration loan, 1940.
During the Roosevelt New Deal, the Farm Security Administration (FSA) became the source of some of the most remarkable photographs in U. S. cultural history. Much of this was the result of Roy Stryker's diligence in recruiting some of the finest photographers for this program. The list is almost endless, but for our purposes here, Sid Grossman was one of them.
