Biographical/Historical note

The historical reports of the University of Idaho Museum resulted from research on a wide range of subject pertaining to the social history of the Palouse region of eastern Washington and northern Idaho. The reports formed the initial stages of an attempt by the University of Idaho Museum to "develop an outdoor branch concerned with the early history of the Palouse region." "The Palouse Hills Farm Museum," as it was tentatively named, was designed to illustrate farming as it existed in the region during the second decade of the 20th century, the pioneer settlement of the territorial period and "the farmtown relationship up to the first years of the Great Depression."
