Farm, Field, and Fireside

Together with the introduction of rural mail delivery, the telephone, and the automobile, farm newspapers played a key role in the modernization of rural America. The Farm, Field and Fireside collection contains historically significant U.S. farm weeklies published in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. These titles document a time of transition in American agriculture, politics, family life, and technology.

The Farm, Field, and Fireside are managed by the History, Philosophy, and Newspaper Library and do not feature precise descriptive information for each item. Discover their contents by browsing the folders and files. For more information, contact an archivist at hpnl@library.uiuc.edu.
