Manuscript Group 108

Palouse Hills Farm Museum Project

Records, 1979-1981
6 l.f.

This descriptive inventory of the material collected by The University of Idaho Museum for its Living History Farm entitled Rural Life In The Palouse now in the University of Idaho Library was prepared by Judith Nielsen in June 1982.


This archival group contains the material written and collected by those involved with planning the Palouse Hills Living History Farm. It consists of twenty-six typed reports dealing with various aspects of rural life in the Palouse from 1890 to 1915, twenty-two sets of cassette tapes (thirty-eight tapes in all) and typed transcripts of seven of those sets which are oral history interviews with Palouse area residents. There are also eight books dealing with farm animals, three 4-H clothing bulletins, maps of the proposed farm, and material for a living history summer course taught at the university.

This group also contains many brochures on living history sites in the United States and many newspaper clippings about the University Museum's farm project. Another very interesting series in this group is the large number of photographs, both period and contemporary, of farming methods, fashion, domestic architecture, and household furnishings. These photographs are either in the typed reports or in the two file boxes of photographs. Some were taken by persons associated with the living farm museum project, others were obtained from the University of Idaho, Washington State University, Eastern Washington State Historical Society, Idaho Historical Society, or from one of several private collections.

This collection is invaluable to anyone interested in early life in the Palouse region, or early agriculture in general.

It should be noted that all original reports in this collection have been copyrighted by the University of Idaho Museum; many photographs are also under copyright.

The material in each series in this group is described in more detail in the following Description of Series.


Material in this group was left in the basic subject arrangement in which it was received by the University of Idaho Museum, although occasionally small sections were grouped with similar subject matter in order to make a more usable unit.

All photographs, including those contained in the typed reports, have been cataloged, and cards for those not from the University of Idaho collection are filed in the Special Collections photograph card file.

I. Transcripts and Original Papers in Sets

As an early part of the planning for the living farm museum many reports on early Palouse agriculture were written by students in Museology and American Studies courses. Other reports were funded either by the Association for the Humanities in Idaho or the Comprehensive Employment Training Act (CETA). These reports were divided into six groups, or sets; a seventh set is comprised of the transcripts of some of the taped oral history interviews, and the eighth is extra copies of the prospectus which is in set six.

The typed reports are listed two ways in this inventory, the first, and most complete description of each item, is under its set title, the second listing (sets 1-6 only) is an alphabetical listing by author.
