The Federal Land Bank of Wichita was created by the Federal Farm Loan Act of 1916 to provide long-term credit to farmers. The archival collection contains photocopied engineering reports and appraisals of the land, its use, water availability, and the debt and payment history of the organization asking for the loan. Reports cover Colorado, New Mexico, Kansas, Nebraska, Utah, and Wyoming. For more information see the finding aid.

This digital collection, with materials dated 1942 to 1982, holds three Federal Land Bank handbooks and the collection’s reports on Colorado loan applicants.
