Exhibit Opening: Farm Life in Iowa: Photographs by A.M. Wettach

Herbert Hoover Presidential Library and Museum
West Branch, IA

Friday, January 19, 2018 - 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. CST

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.
