Marie Harris Giddings' History of the Harris Family, 1898 to approximately 1930 dates from 1980 and measures one linear inch. This family history is a remarkably rich and detailed account of farm and rural community life as Marie Giddings knew it growing up in Kossuth County. It includes descriptions of the rhythmic patterns of farm work, recreation, school and church activities, illness and medical care, and the economic realities that shaped her family's life. This account is also a rich source of information about gender in rural Iowa in the first half of the twentieth century. Photocopies of photographs of farm implements and family activities accompany the text.
