Specific areas investigated were photography courses offered, length of classes, number of classroom sessions, name and author of textbooks, class sizes, hours of darkroom use, student laboratory fees, film processing procedures, types of school-owned cameras, photography budgets, teacher qualifications, photography contests, success of programs, equipment and cost to initiate a basic course, use of second -hand equipment, years courses were offered, classroom instruction materials , and class outlines. A two-page questionnaire was mailed to 60 high school photography instructors in schools that were thought to offer photography as part of their regular curriculum in Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wyoming. Of the 60 instructors, 44 responded, or 73 percent. Thirty-nine of 44, or 89 percent of those responding, said they were teaching photography.
