Description: Noted author and farmer Louis Bromfield works on his farm in Lucas, Ohio, in this photograph taken by Joe Munroe, 1951. Bromfield was an early proponent of organic and self-sustaining gardening, and life on Malabar Farm reflected these beliefs. Joe Munroe's career began in 1939 at the Cranbrook Academy of Art. He served in the Air Force during World War II and then joined Cincinnati-based Farm Quarterly magazine. Though raised in Detroit, agriculture became an important subject of Joe's photographs. He moved to California in 1955 and free-lanced, taking magazine assignments and selling his own work. View on Ohio Memory.
