        Disaster and Government Response | Essential Lens

        This collection of photographs and activites from the Essential Lens series highlights the Great Depression, the Dust Bowl, and the New Deal. The photography of the Dust Bowl and Depression era is vast and rich, with images that were often commissioned by the Historical Section of the Farm Security Administration (FSA). This period in American history provides an opportunity to compare the challenges facing the rural west with the challenges facing the urban east.
