Boy, Fourteen: 1936

November 1936. "Portraits of destitute migrant agricultural workers and their children. Boy, fourteen, in eighth grade. Now unable to attend because of insufficient food and clothing. Subsisted two days on frozen tomatoes from field nearby. Father says, 'They call me a road hog and a bum, but if I am, how did that boy get into the eighth grade?' American River camp, near Sacramento." Photo by Dorothea Lange for the Resettlement Administration. View full size.
