Joe Munroe Archive
Description: This 1950 photograph by Joe Munroe shows a group of women listening to a poetry reading during their Wimodausis poetry club meeting in Ohio. Clubs and activities like this helped to entertain farming communities. 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.
