Lower Austria's Agricultural Elites, 1930–1960

Funding

IGLR (own project in cooperation with the Provincial Archive of Lower Austria)

Duration

July 2007-December 2008

Researcher

Josef Redl

Description

The project analyses the social profile of the agricultural chamber’s employees (before 1938 and after 1945), as well as the profile of the employees of the Reichsnährstand (1938–45) on the basis of the personnel files of the Lower Austrian agricultural chamber. Thus, the project seeks to contribute to a collective biography of this group of agrarian elites in Lower Austria.
