Scrapbook of photos and writing related to the Wheat Queen Contest. The typed preface explains that the contest was held as part of the Wheat Festival in Hutchinson, KS. The photos are often of the contestants, their families, and homes, usually on farms in and around the area.

Most writing is typed on separate pages from the ones containing photos, which often feature handwritten details.
