This paper places Idaho’s natural landscape at the forefront of analysis utilizing the over 1,200 black and white photographs taken in Idaho by Farm Security Administration (FSA) photographers between May 1936 and April 1942. These photos of Idaho’s natural landscape and the people in it illustrate the political, economic, and social history of Idaho during the Great Depression and early war years.
