Student Voices: Brooklyn College Oral Histories on WW2 and the McCarthy Era — Farm Labor
This website was a 2004 collaboration between the American Social History Project and Brooklyn College. In this Farm Labor Project section, the historical narrators describe participating in Brooklyn College's Farm Labor Project. These students, children of immigrants, responded to the World War II farm labor shortage by volunteering to spend their summer as farmworkers. During the summers of 1942, '43, and '44, they worked on farms in Upstate New York picking peas and beans.
