This photo of “Elbert Amyx and His Project” is taken from a 1930-31 booklet in the Historium’s collection that was published by Bakersfield School to promote its innovative programs. The text with the photo says, “Vocational Agriculture is the only course offered in high school in which the boy earns while learning. Each boy taking Vocational Agriculture is required to carry on a home project related to the school work and supervised by the instructor, carried to completion on the farm. ... [T]he boys are given practical training in farm shop in which they learn the fundamentals of woodwork, sheet metal, hot metal, concrete, leather and rope. Students are also given practical training in the field in almost every line of farm management such as soil improvement, erosion, pruning, and judging.” Interestingly, while the 1930s text refers only to boys, state numbers show that the number of vo ag students today is split about evenly between male and female students. And two of Ozark County’s four high school vo ag teachers are women.
