These images are part of a series made by Arthur Rothstein, likely for use in a feature that was published later in 1938 in Progressive Farmer magazine. Along with Chester Foster’s family, the McDuffie family was the best-documented of the entire project.

    Thanks for posting Brian! This is my grandfather and it’s so special to see his life and work documented here. His 2 sons are in Irwinville if you ever want to interview them.

    I love these photos of farmers plowing up the land with the horses and walking behind them.
