FFA Boys in a Classroom
Photograph of young men, participants in the Future Farmers of American program, in a Shawnee Mission Rural High School classroom in 1940 or 1941. Five of the boys are clustered at a desk in the foreground, looking at trays filled with soil and plant matter. Six more students are visible in the background left of the image, gathered around another work surface. A note included with the image reads: "A group reading germination tests on own seeds." The photograph is part of the 1940-1941 Future Farmers of America "Community Service" scrapbook.
