AGRICULTURAL ADJUSTMENT ADMINISTRATION
The various commodity control programs of the Agricultural Adjust-
ment Administration were inaugurated in Kentucky during the spring and g
summer of 1954. These programs were replaced after the Hoosac-Mills
decision of the Supreme Court by the agricultural conservation and do- `
mestic allotment program. The field program of the AAA is administered
through the offices of the county agricultural extension agents and the
field records are found in their custody. These records pertaining to
AAA activities have been placed in the inventory under the heading "Field
AgentL" These agents are, in most cases, the county extension agents
acting as county representatives of the Department of Agriculture for the
Agricultural Adjustment Administration. Other records relating to the
programs of the AAA will be found under the agencies creating them, espe-
cially under the state office of the Extension Service.
