Series 2: County Photograph Files PI/2010.0002/Series II
Series 2 of the Mississippi Farm Bureau Federation (MFBF) office consists of 2,032 photographs collected by the Public Affairs Office during the 1950s through the early 1960s, arranged in folders by county. Two duplicate prints were not scanned. The majority of the photographs are black and white and were taken by MFBF Public Affairs Office staff. Some were submitted to the home office by county bureaus. The images are of farms, farmers, farming activities, 4-H club activities, local MFBF directors and staff, and sponsored social events such as barbecues, beauty and talent contests, and festivals promoting farm products. Of special interest are images of the Mississippi Farmer's Market in Jackson, William Faulkner making a rare public speaking appearance, and noted politicians such as Governor J. P. Coleman, Senator John Stennis and Representative Sonny Montgomery.
