This portrait was taken by photojournalist Arthur Rothstein as part of his early work with the federal Resettlement Administration, which later became the Farm Security Administration. The one-armed man shown was part of the Central Oregon Grazing Project, which covered parts of Sherman, Crook and Jefferson Counties. It demonstrates Rothstein's ability to capture character in an apparently simple photograph.

-- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
