Scope and Content

The collection contains three albums and an accopress binder of photographs documenting the development of the State Land Settlement Project at Delhi, California, from 1920-1922. Included are views of the city, farm houses, temporary shelters, fairs, agricultural exhibits of crops and livestock, portraits of the State Land Settlement Board members, and photos of irrigation pipes and agricultural machinery. Some of the photographs were made by McCurry Foto Co. The three albums include captions printed on photographs or typewritten captions pasted below photographs, and the accopress binder has handwritten captions below each photograph - all captions are reprinted in the container listing.
The collection also contains five boxes of glass negatives which are unarranged and not available for use.


The State Land Settlements at Delhi and Durham were begun in 1919 and 1918, respectively. The Delhi settlement was located in Merced County, California, about 6 miles south of Turlock, between the Southern Pacific and the Santa Fe railroads. The settlements were based on a 1917 land settlement program initiated by the state of California to encourage and improve land development methods. Delhi settlement had about 230 settlers who owned the segments of land on which they worked. Previously, agriculture in California had been in the hands of individuals whose efforts were not always good for the land. The program was a means by which to educate large groups of people on better farming techniques. The settlement, in which settlers shared land, supplies, and workflow, was intended to demonstrate desirable land settlement methods in a communal setting and encourage cooperation and social organization. Settlers were chosen by the California State Land Settlement Board (chaired by Dr. Elwood Mead) based on their capital, experience, and attitude towards cooperative effort. Each prospective settler had to appear before the Board for questioning, and was watched carefully even after being accepted into the program. Two basic aims of the program were to improve the living conditions of the settlers and to increase the number of people on the farms.
The 8,000 acres of Delhi settlement were divided into about 66 laborers' land allotments, averaging about 28 acres in size. The settlement was furnished with a somewhat complex irrigation system, which was one of the most expensive elements of the program. Areas of poor soil were made into poultry farms, allowing people with less money to be able to buy into the Delhi settlement. The settlement, actually a townsite, included residential districts, with playgrounds, schools, and a civic center. The Board furnished the townsite with buildings and even a layout for each allotment's gardens, orchards, and farm fields, so settlers started out with a functional tract of land.
The Board's criteria for the selection of settlers at Delhi vanished as they realized that there were not enough applicants to fill the existing land allotments. However, the townsite still managed to attract a good number of people with some farming experience. Veterans made up a large segment of the Delhi settlers.
At first, the settlers were enthusiastic about the program. Early attempts at cooperation included group purchasing of dairy cows and a group milk-selling association. However, disputes soon made these ventures unsuccessful, and even community social activities began to disappear. The Board's need to keep land under contract often harmed the ideals of the settlement, in that settlers who put little or no effort into farming were allowed to remain on the land. For those who did work, the allotments proved to be too small for some crops. The Delhi settlement was plagued with poor harvests and bad weather, and the need to reinvest initial profits from the first few years of harvests was unattractive to most settlers. After the first five years the Delhi settlement was almost a complete failure, and the state gave up much of its investment. In retrospect, the causes of failure of the settlement as a whole were seen to be crop failures, expensive but poor land, higher-than-anticipated expenses in general, and economic conditions at the time which were unfavorable to this type of land development.

Full title

No. 187 ["Wilson Hall - Gift of Edgar M. Wilson of San Francisco. Wilson Hall typifies the neighborhood spirit wherein men are social beings rather than machines, dwell in homes not laboratories, and lead the old town meeting out into the service of the new economic democracy. From the beginnings of human civilization, the irrigation trench, in Egypt and Babylonia, taught men to work together. Today history is written in terms of such works as the hospital, the library, the church and the schools. Joint credit, security of life, and community health have laid the basis of a cooperation, rich in sympathy and keen to serve. For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul? -- Benj. [Benjamin] I. Wheeler, March, 1922."]
