Biographical Sketch

The American Agriculture Movement (AAM) was formed in 1977 in response to Congressional legislation entailing four years of farm prices below the cost of production. In many states, farmers organized protests, strikes, pickets, boycotts, and marches on state capitols and on Washington, D.C. (1977-1979). In February 1979, thousands of farmers converged on Washington, D.C., in a tractorcade organized by AAM. Following this event, the AAM established a Washington office to bring farmers' voices to Congress and the Administration. Many of the materials relate to Norman and Mary Harper of Kansas, who were involved with the movement.
