|In 1936, Henry Luce,
who had successfully started two of the great news magazines in the United
States, TIME and FORTUNE, decided to start yet a third publication. It
would feature the work of the great new photojournalists
who were starting to emerge. One of these photographers was Carl Mydans.
Carl's first assignment was to photograph a small town in Texas. This essay became the first photo essay to be filed in the new LIFE picture collection, and still bears the number 001.
