Page 1 of 48 of the Dorothea Lange Yale Collection Area of Interest.
The photos in this Dorothea Lange Yale collection were taken in 1939 as part of the Federal Government's effort to document the effects of New Deal programs on life in the United States during the Great Depression and following World War II.

The caption wording with each photograph is as originally captioned by the photographer or the government agency by whom the photographs were compiled.

Dorothea Lange, May 26, 1895 - October 11, 1965, was an influential American documentary photographer and photojournalist, best known for her Depression-era work for the Farm Security Administration (FSA). Lange's photographs humanized the consequences of the Great Depression and influenced the development of documentary photography.
