Imagining a New Deal: A Documentary Portrait of Ohio

Planning for a traveling panel exhibition, curriculum materials, education programs, and a website exploring the impact of the Great Depression and the New Deal on Ohioans using Farm Security Administration photographs taken in Ohio.

The Ohio Humanities Council seeks a planning grant to engage Ohioans in an exploration of the impact of the Great Depression and the New Deal in Ohio. Using Farm Security Administration photographs made in Ohio as a starting point, the Council seeks to incorporate research from regional and national archives, local history collections, a rephotographic survey, exhibits, and teacher resources. The planning grant will be used to assist with research, consultation, and pilot programs for a statewide project observing the 75th anniversary of the New Deal.
