Collection Highlights, USDA History Collection

This page contains links to scanned images of selected documents found in the collection. These will provide a sense of the variety of materials in the collection, and will increase access to these resources for researchers who cannot visit the library to view the original items.

The documents are presented in jpeg or gif formats which show the basic informational content, with many significant features of the originals. However, they do not provide the same level of detail that is available in higher resolution scans, and are not intended to substitute for the experience of viewing the actual documents.
