WWII: U.S. Defense: Women Farmers

A group of Washington women as they signed up, at the headquarters of the newly organized American Women’s Voluntary Service Agriculture Auxiliary in Washington on Jan. 23, 1941, to take a course in farming to help ease shortage of farm labor caused by the war. The enlisted women will start off with a course in simple gardening and progress to dairy work and poultry tending and the care of farm machinery. Left to right: Mrs. Rodman Wanamaker, Mrs. Harold J. Pearson, Mrs. M. L. Sweet, Mrs. Williams C. Knight, and Mrs. Robert Harvey. (AP Photo/William J. Smith)
