Scholarly sources: – This source I got from when we did our Blog Post 7. Gunfer presents research on tilling the land, how different states were affected, and other factors that contributed to the Dust Bowl. I thought this source would be a good place to start. – I found this peer-reviewed source when looking for ecological papers and liked what this source presented about. This source mainly focuses on the environment and human involvement that made the Dust Bowl possible,contains,dust%20bowl&pcAvailability=false – I found this source while looking through the Creighton library trying to find the long-term effects of the Dust Bowl as I want to look into whether the event pushed greater suburbanization as a result of the catastrophe.,contains,dust%20bowl&pcAvailability=false – When I was looking for sources I wanted to find something that focused on change over time in terms of the states hit the hardest.,contains,dust%20bowl&pcAvailability=false – This scholarly source is one of my favorite that I found. Specifically, because it relates to the exact question I am trying to answer with what did people do as a result of the Dust Bowl? And where did they go?,contains,dust%20bowl&pcAvailability=false – This source I felt would be helpful from when I transition to talking about the Dust Bowl in the 1930s to the recovery of the country and specifically the Great Plains in the 1940s.,contains,dust%20bowl&pcAvailability=false – I thought this source was interesting as a forecasting type of research report. We talked in our class about why isn’t America going through another Dust Bowl, and this also talks about the potential for a storm caused by drought in our century.,contains,dust%20bowl&pcAvailability=false – This source talks about the over tilling of America and why it had an impact on the Dust Bowl coming when it did. This source and Gunfer go hand in hand in my opinion.,contains,dust%20bowl&pcAvailability=false – This source also talks about the prospect of another Dust Bowl type of disaster. What we learned from the past Dust Bowl and how we can prevent another situation from happening, between the government, citizens, and farmers.,contains,dust%20bowl&offset=10&pcAvailability=false – This is another source that I am really intrigued to use in how I craft my storytelling for the final project. There are witness accounts and stories of the Dust Bowl and I want to use this to guide through the data of how the Dust Bowl impacted suburbanization in the 20th century.

Maps sources:–Wheat-sq–mile-?sort=pub_list_no_initialsort%2Cpub_list_no_initialsort%2Cpub_list_no_initialsort%2Cpub_list_no_initialsort&qvq=w4s:/what%2FAtlas%2BMap%2FStatistical%2BAtlas%2FAgriculture%2Fwhere%2FUnited%2BStates;sort:pub_list_no_initialsort%2Cpub_list_no_initialsort%2Cpub_list_no_initialsort%2Cpub_list_no_initialsort;lc:RUMSEY~8~1&mi=28&trs=71 – This map came from our Blog Post 7 readings for the week. Rumsey shows us the great plains and the Wheat per Square mile which I plan on connecting to the tilling of land in the early 20th century in my story map. – This source also came from Blog Post 7. What I want to do with the maps that are displayed is create a similar side-by-side view of the midwest between 1930 and 1940 and show how the agricultural landscape changed, how the population moved, and the similarities between the two.;!!MuWMPV1_1eXDnA!gN0H4KdEZ3s7PXZlSVHO0EvwfsNV1ls91fbosWH4lddin5Hl8WEkoXCAvvqp4CZH4mHyZ_M$ – Beyond the first two mapping sources, the rest are maps/databases from NHGIS. This map focuses on the Agricultural landscape of America in 1930. This will be a good base map to look at how things have changed over time.;!!MuWMPV1_1eXDnA!hQvf8rXcoshSV-i5kf7SnBbFr-JmsXbU9h8VRSZRtQQEi1jRywDA2pUEd_0Lhbg6TCSyC3M$ – This map focuses on the population of the United States in 1930. This is also an important step in understanding how the population was before the Dust Bowl and then comparing it to how it changed 10 years later.;!!MuWMPV1_1eXDnA!m6gmmZnzizQGNNp-o0wJkEPQoNq4LmzPIkIcSz9MSxUMOBcTB8k62s57OUyNViPXNJqbVzg$ – This map focuses on the population of the United States in 1940. This will be used to compare to the previous dataset looking at change in overall population.;!!MuWMPV1_1eXDnA!hPquROysJqkIWbtq0BB-a1AzCysOQLs6pIaF9CrpMKTXEgSjkcALI8jsExO-FzoYZlMitHw$ – This map looks at US counties in 1930. I wanted to also look at a more individual look into counties in 1930 to specifically address the population movement and the question of suburbanization.;!!MuWMPV1_1eXDnA!gfNVgSmIQHlTBhQfdnkVvAXe_iIi-UPVuGsXmx18AWl2EliXOC2Zd9_HoHTo3hm-1Lef8tk$ – This map focuses on farm area and utilization in 1930. Since the Dust Bowl had a strong relationship with the farmers of that time, I thought it would be a good idea to look into how farmland was used before the Dust Bowl.;!!MuWMPV1_1eXDnA!nL_FoTZyCCxUJ5oKthH3bxbE7z2bpC3tueUr_noPq8z6c9VGRSDBbEH4iIbiTgi7SrCqqV0$;!!MuWMPV1_1eXDnA!gfNVgSmIQHlTBhQfdnkVvAXe_iIi-UPVuGsXmx18AWl2EliXOC2Zd9_HoHTo3hm-1Lef8tk$ – This map focuses on farm area and utilization in 1940. I wanted to compare how this would look versus how it did in 1930, with the previous data source.;!!MuWMPV1_1eXDnA!nIJ4Txp7LmkCYxmIPiLd8QtS-P5lk8iQTxdGZu2B5S6UI5KGmAOq3lSQYLKDAzYNP2pRTj4$ – This next data source looks at overall households in 1930 to show where the densest households are. This is important because I wanted to focus on Suburbanization and if I compare this to households in 1940 I would have a good comparison.;!!MuWMPV1_1eXDnA!nGWRUaj3HoiSuFFrnl8k3O3S-nwI9f2L83E1NeQ10TuGcQBsTC6uYMhmcgOk2Ui-gw6pFew$ – This data source has county population data for every county from 1930 – 1940. This has other years for data but I’m only focused on the relationship between this set to keep my story scoped.;!!MuWMPV1_1eXDnA!nlRBehssTiCR40kOEn6a4csyVN7LO2-bLrZh7s448o7iTNq3Q5A7OfXbd-fN2F7l0eiJMVY$ – This dataset looks at state populations in 1940. The reason that I’m interested in this is to see how people moved across the country from 1930 to 1940. This will be useful with tying in some of the scholarly sources looking at how people adapted from the Dust Bowl and if they moved.

  1. Thomas, this is fine for now – just know that I’ll need COMPLETE citations for the final project sources page. I don’t particularly care what citation style you use as long as its correct and consistent. Do you know how to find those? We’ve talked about your project at this point, and I think you have a clear direction. It looks like you’re using NHGIS effectively and you’ve found some scholarly sources too. Shot me a message if you run into difficulties.
