About Midwest Migrant Farm Worker Photograph Collection

The Midwest Migrant Farm Worker Photographs Collection contains 132 photographs donated by David R. Cormier, former assistant coordinator for Labor Studies at Indiana University Kokomo. These photographs are part of the larger Midwest Migrant Farm Worker Collection, described by Cormier as follows: “The primary focus is on materials from the first grape and lettuce boycotts, the volunteer boycott support committees which were set up in northern and central Indiana, the activity with migrant workers during that period here in the Midwest, and related information from the UFW from that period.” These photographs document Cormier’s experiences with these boycotts and notably include candid photographs with Cesar Chavez, Dolores Huerta, and fellow labor organizers.
