About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Rabies Babies: 1939

Rabies Babies: 1939

June 1939. "Day laborer and his family who live in the Arkansas River bottoms near Webbers Falls, Oklahoma. This entire family was taking anti-rabic serum after drinking milk from a cow which had rabies. There were no public funds for this treatment and a local man was financing it." Medium format negative by Russell Lee for the Farm Security Administration. View full size.

Rough times

The absolute despair of their condition is written on the father's face.

Raw Milk?

As in unpasteurized? If so theoretically yes, a human could then get rabies via milk if the bacteria wasn’t killed off but on the other hand there has never been a documented case of it happening either. Even cattle today are not typically vaccinated against rabies, which does in fact occur, though not common.

I suppose it’s all water under the bridge by now, or fussin’ over, er, spilled milk.
