Abstract

Between 1939 and 1944, photographers working for the US Farm Security Administration and later the Office of War Information created approximately 1,600 color photographs depicting life in the United States, including Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. The pictures focus on rural areas and farm labor, as well as aspects of World War II mobilization, including factories, railroads, aviation training, and women working. Fewer in number than the much larger collections of black-and-white images, these are searchable and browseable, and accompanied by a brief introduction and a bibliography.
