These two collections from the Institute for
Regional Studies at North Dakota State University contain
900 photographs of rural and small town life at the turn of the century.
Highlights include images of sod homes and the people who built them;
images of farms and the machinery that made them prosper; and images of
one-room schools and the children that were educated in them.
The mission of the Library of Congress is to make its
resources available and useful to Congress and the American people and to
sustain and preserve a universal collection of knowledge and creativity
for future generations. The goal of the Library's National Digital
Library Program is to offer broad public access to a wide range of
historical and cultural documents as a contribution to education and
lifelong learning. Digital collections from other institutions complement
and enhance the Library's own resources.
The Library of Congress presents these documents as part of the record
of the past. These primary historical documents reflect the attitudes,
perspectives, and beliefs of different times. The Library of Congress
does not endorse the views expressed in these collections, which may
contain materials offensive to some readers.
