We're putting our initial efforts into building a page of resources on to food history. But if you have something to add to our page in any of the following categories, please contact executive secretary Joe Anderson.

“Williams School - Brush, Colo. 7 children present out of 30 or 40 that are expected when beet work is over. It is Oct. 27, seven weeks after school opened. The school is well equipped, the teacher has a degree (A.B.) and one other teacher in this district (out of five rural teachers) also has the same degree. Salaries run from $65 to $75 a month, 9 mos. school. The tremendous loss of schooling in these Colorado schools seems all the more wasteful when we see the good facilities read for the children's use. Location: Brush, Colorado,” Lewis Wicks Hine, photographer, 27 October 1915. Library of Congress LOT 7475, v. 2, no. 4055
