Collection Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information Black-and-White Negatives

FSA and OWI Popular Staff Selections

No one can work long with Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information photographs without developing some personal favorites. One of the pleasures of using the collection lies in sharing "finds" with others. The development of this site offered the members of the Prints and Photographs Division reference staff a much-appreciated opportunity to share some of their favorites with the public. Some of the selections were described as "fun," others as "haunting." Still others were images whose proven appeal was so great that staff felt they should not be missed, thus demonstrating the difficulty of limiting the number of popular images in the collection to a mere "15 Popular Requests".

There are no known restrictions on the use of the images. For further information, see the Rights Information page.
