Scope & Content The collection consists of records of the Farm Service Bureau from 1938 to 1963 with the bulk of the records being from 1948-1963. Included are the organization's articles of incorporation, board meeting minutes during that time, both for the board of directors and the annual stockholder's meetings. Unfortunately the secretary was not very detailed in taking down the minutes so the informational value can be somewhat limited.
