Rothstein's Family Portraits explores Arthur Rothstein's portraits of the Corbin Family produced during his 1935 assignment in what is now Shenandoah National Park for the Resettlement Administration (later the Farm Security Administration). Expanding on research done for the film Rothstein's First Assignment (Cinema Guild, 2011), the presentation explores why Arthur Rothstein documented the Corbins when they were not resettled. With a focus on family member Mary Francis Corbin Donald, who, with her siblings and Corbin cousins, survived Virginia's Eugenic Program, Rothstein's Family Portraits looks to the legacy of the Family Eugenic Studies and their possible influence on Rothstein's project.
