National Agricultural Library (USDA), Washington, DC.; Economics, Statistics, and Cooperatives Service (USDA), Washington, DC.
More than 250 citations of materials about women in agriculture in the U.S. are contained in this partially annotated bibliography. It covers women engaged as landowners, farm managers, agricultural laborers and working in such agricultural industries as beekeeping, silk culture, and butter production. Other references concern women in agricultural education, as agricultural scientists, as workers in agriculture-related industries, and as participants in rural organizations. Content of the materials reaches from 1854 to 1977. An introduction to the bibliography suggests aspects of the topic of American women in agriculture which are ripe for further study (such as review of the agricultural press or by-laws and minutes of organizations devoted to women's agricultural pursuits); the introduction also lists the resources used for this compilation. Information on availability of the cited references is also included. (RS)
