Exhibit: The Grapes of Wrath: The Indiana Experience


This exhibit examines the Indiana experience of living through the time period depicted in The Big Read book selection, The Grapes of Wrath.  Based on the book Back Home Again: Indiana in the Farm Security Administration Photographs, 1935—1943 edited by Dr. Robert L. Reid, Academic Vice President Emeritus, USI, this grouping of photographs and artifacts briefly surveys the topics of flood and erosion issues, farm auction events, and resettlement programs. Also profiled are the photographers hired by the FSA to visit Indiana and document these moments in history.
