Beschreibung

At the turn of the twentieth century, the Midwestern farm press made recommendations to farmers, but farmers ultimately decided whether or not they would follow the advice. This in-depth look at producers and readers of Midwestern farm newspapers offers a facinating insight into rural American life.

John Fry is Assistant Professor of History at Trinity Christian College.

Klappentext

This project contributes to our understanding of rural Midwesterners and farm newspapers at the turn of the century. While cultural historians have mainly focused on readers in town and cities, it examines Midwestern farmers. It also contributes to the "new rural history" by exploring the ideas of Hal Barron and others that country people selectively adapted the advice given to them by reformers. Finally, it furthers our understanding of American farm newspapers themselves and offers suggestions on how to use them as sources.
