  • Abstract

    This collection is a product of a grant directed by John Marsh and assisted by Karl Nordberg in 1978-79. The grant centered on the Goodell Farm as working exhibit of rural farming in Pennsylvania. It also included a look at current farming techniques and what the future may hold for farming. The grant activities included presentations, including talks from local farmers, that lead up to a video presentation (the video is not in the collection).
