: American Hereford registration for a heifer named "BHF Royal Lady," bred by George C. Parks of Athens, Ohio, and owned by Malabar Farms of Lucas, Ohio. From the records of the Friends of the Land organization (based in Columbus) after they assumed ownership of novelist and celebrity farmer Louis Bromfield's famed Malabar Farms in Lucas. An accompanying folder reads "White Face Registration Certificates," reflecting the popular name of the breed. 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.
