During the 2012-2013 grant period, I used the Rockefeller Archive Center's (RAC) generous grant-in-aid to develop my research on the efforts of the Rockefeller Foundation (RF) to modernize agriculture in Mexico during the early years of the cold war. The aim of this research was to understand how the Mexican Agricultural Program (MAP) operated on the ground. Most scholarship on this and other "green revolution" programs during the postwar era has taken executive-level planning and discourse as representing the actual efforts and their effects in local communities. However, by reexamining the local interactions between scientists and other aid workers and their target communities, my work seeks to open up our understanding of the relations between so-called first and third world states in the cold war context.
