This 15 minute film looks at early farming life in Washington's Whitman County and the Palouse region. It incorporates films from the 1920s and 1930s as well as oral history interviews with some of those early farmers. The film was created in 1982 by then-Communications student Mark Hooper from materials held in the WSU Libraries and in WSU's Manuscripts, Archives, and Special Collections (MASC). The film was digitized from a U-Matic tape (3/4" 10354) by MASC in 2011 and placed online with Mr. Hooper's permission. The occasional video or audio glitches and fading should be attributed to the age of the tape, and the transition processes involved in digitizing it, not to Mr. Hooper's original work. The historic video clips include films made by Norman Longhurst in the 1930s, and by C.E. Graves in the 1920s. Audio clips appear to be from the Whitman County Historical Society Oral Histories Collection.
