This website provides background information and educational
resources for students and teachers interested in using the FSA
photographs in Indiana. The Farm Security Administration was a New Deal
agency established in 1937. It originally started as the Resettlement
Administration in 1935 and later became the Office of War Information.
The photographs cover a timeline from 1935 to 1945. Its goal was to
rescue the chronic rural poor and farmers during the Great Depression of
the 1930s. The FSA had four main tasks: resettlement, rehabilitation,
technical assistance and land utilization.
