Administrator, Farm Security Administration.

The Farm Security Administration, under the direction of Roy Emerson Stryker, was a bureau which succeeded the Resettlement Administration. The Resettlement Administration was founded in 1935 to develop programs which utilized, rehabilitated, and improved the land and the work for tenant and sharecropper families. The FSA was established in 1937 as a branch of the Resettlement Administration to oversee its programs for rural poverty.

Its Historic Section documented photographically the harsh living conditions of poverty-stricken rural and urban America. The Resettlement Administration and its programs fell under the FSA's auspices. After 1942, the photographs project was transplanted to the Office of War Information, and the emphasis of the project shifted from rural and urban conditions throughout Depression-era U.S. to the domestic impact of the war. In 1946, Congress created the Farmers Home Administration (FHA) which absorbed the FSA and its programs.
