• Special to the Daily Leader
Dust off the photo albums and clean out the attics, Ken Burns is looking for your pictures and home videos of the ‘dirty thirties.’  
Acclaimed documentary filmmaker Ken Burns is looking for your personal photographs and home videos to be included in the historical documentary film, The Dust Bowl.  
Focusing on the areas most affected by the disaster, The Dust Bowl tells the story of life, death and perseverance during the late 1920s and 1930s.   
The documentary combines personal narratives, archival footage and photography to bring the story of The Dust Bowl to life—and your help is needed. The research team is looking for any images of local towns, people and farms taken during the 1930s. Images of street scenes, farmers in the field, the interiors of houses, schools and makeshift hospitals, people covering their faces with dust masks or handkerchiefs, women cleaning their homes and farm scenes are of particular interest.   
If you have a collection of photographs from the late 1920s or anytime during the 1930s, the Dust Bowl research team wants to hear from you.
