Exhibit Closure: Farm Life in Iowa: Photographs by A.M. Wettach
Herbert Hoover Presidential Library and Museum
West Branch, IA
Farm Life in Iowa is an exhibition of thirty photographs taken by A. M. “Pete” Wettach (1901–1976). Wettach’s photos documented rural existence from 1925 to 1960—thirty-five of the most revolutionary years for farming as a way of life in Iowa. Working as a freelance photographer based in Mount Pleasant, Wettach recorded changes in farming practices while honoring the values of family and self-sufficiency. Wettach’s unique interpretation of the family farm comes from his documentary style and keen compassion for his subjects.
