Oral History Collection
Minnesota Farm Economy Oral History Project
The state's No. 1 industry, agriculture, is documented in this project. Many interviews in the Society's other oral history collections also contain depictions of farm life, most reminiscences about early 20th-century life. This project examines the changing role of farming in the late 20th century through interviews with people from a variety of backgrounds. Narrators discuss the roles of various agricultural organizations and the impact of their work in banking and business development on Minnesota's agricultural economy.
