Sharecropper and Tenant Agreements 1945

I found an amazing Special Arkansas Bulletin prepared by
 THE WILSON PLANTATION on July 20, 1945 about the
farming opportunities and the various offers to families interested in the share crop or land rental. 
It was written under the War Relocation Authority for the Japanese Americans, 
but I'm sure the opportunities would apply to others. 

I have often spoken about the sharecropper/tenant and the contract
made with the land owner, so I was thrilled to come across
this actual booklet which lines out the terms of the three types of contracts available.

There is some invaluable information about the farming industry of the
area in 1943-45 also.

Talk about local history!!!!!
