National Youth Administration


A black and white National Youth Administration photograph of two men and a woman watching a woodcutting machine demonstration. The African American man at the left is wearing a three-piece suit. The man in the center of the photograph is a tall Caucasian and is also wearing a suit and overcoat. The woman at the right is an NYA student who is wearing coveralls and an NYA button, and she is operating the woodcutting machine. The button reads, "National Youth Administration Work Experience Center." Mary McLeod Bethune was the Director of Negro Affairs in the 1940's for the NYA, and she most likely acquired this photograph during her time as an NYA agent. On the back of the photograph is written "NY-14." The photographer of the image is unknown.
