DESCRIPTION: The Hospodar magazine was founded in Omaha, NE in 1890 by Jan Rosicky. The magazine is in Czech, but by copying sections and pasting them into Google Translate a good idea of the article can be obtained. The magazine focuses on farming practices, but typically about 2/3s of the way through each issue there will be letters posted by individual Czechs and Slovaks from all areas of the US. These articles will cover a full range of stories from immigration encounters to farming practices to commentary on politics in the US and their former home. A key intent of the magazine was to assist immigrants in understanding the land, environment and farming practices leading to success in their new home. Each magazine is a separate pdf file that will download to your pc. They are usually about 30 meg in size but vary by issue.
