Summary:
Collection consists of the project records, photographs and oral history materials comprising the Southern Agriculture Oral History Project. The project was developed by NMAH employees Lu Ann Jones and Pete Daniel with support from SI photographers and other personnel. For several years beginning in 1986, Jones traveled the Southern U.S. conducting oral history interviews with farm workers. The interviewees include people who worked on or owned farms of varying sizes, from very small to corporate sized. They were farmers of rice, tobacco, cotton and livestock. The interviewees were ethnically diverse. A series of interviews was conducted with Mexican workers. Over 150 interviews were conducted, and some of the interviews are transcribed or have distillations or edited versions of the interview. Other items Jones collected include life history forms, correspondence, articles, interviewer's notes, business cards, photographs. Photograph files contain photographs taken by a Smithsonian photographer or copies of photographs supplied by the subject. Interviewees are listed below and are arranged alphabeticallly by state and thereunder, alphabetically by subject.
