Contents of Volume 83, 2002

 Fall-Winter 2002 Vol. 83, Nos. 3-4:    $3.50 (members, $3.15)
On the Cover:
A relief worker delivers supplies by airplane to a snowbound farmstead, probably in Frontier County. From mid-November 1948 through April 1949, snowstorms and high winds paralyzed travel, isolated farms and ranches, killed livestock, and engendered a massive, federally assisted relief effort. Often called simply "The Blizzard of '49," it is one of the costliest natural events in the state's history, and has become a landmark in Nebraskans' perception of their past. Gamber Studio, Curtis Nebr., NSHS-RG3139-133 (Reproduced in reverse to facilitate placement on the cover.)
