Culture and Agriculture: An Anthropological Study of a Corn Belt CountyHorace Miner 1949
To mark the completion of their digitization, UMMAA titles are temporarily free-to-read until the end of September 2021.
In 1939, Horace Miner lived for four months in Hardin County, Iowa, in order to carry out an anthropological study of farm life. The following year, Miner wrote up his results for the United States Agricultural Department, which had requested the study. Due to political concerns, it would be nearly a decade before his study was published. This slim volume contains the results of his fieldwork.
