'To Fulfill the Wishes of Louis Bromfield' pamphlet
Description: Pamphlet by the Friends of the Land appealing to membership to donate gifts to help support the organization's purchase of late farmer and novelist Louis Bromfield's famous Malabar Farm in Lucas, Ohio. Includes woodcut illustration of Malabar Farm, attributed to artist Kate Lord. The Friends of the Land Collection (1930-1960) contains the papers of the Friends of the Land (1940-1959), a prominent national soil conservation education organization headquartered in Columbus, Ohio. FOTL produced an international literary arts quarterly, THE LAND (edited by New Deal agriculture writer Russell Lord) in addition to several members' only publications (LAND LETTER) and informational pamphlets. They also hosted annual conferences; ran conservation tours, teacher training labs, and workshops; and operated as a national clearinghouse for conservation information. Ohio farmer and novelist Louis Bromfield was active in the organization. Much of the collection reflects the career and interests of FOTL Executive Secretary Ollie Fink, who was a prominent conservation education pioneer in Ohio. View on Ohio Memory.
