Abstract: The traditional history of the Cold War centers on the communist influence in America. Viewing the history from 1950 ti 1964 with this lens forces events within this time period to be constricted within this framework. However, limiting Cold War history to this particular lens allows for the history of agriculture in the Southwest to be forgotten. Public Law 78 is rarely discussed as a lens that the Cold War can be viewed from, but by viewing the events during the Cold War through this lens a new Cold War history emerges that is dominated by corporate agricultural interests of the Southwest and not by foreign policy and communism.
