"This is a woman who lived through and documented fascist Germany, the Depression, the early migrant stream, McCarthyism, the Japanese internment - and did this as a woman in a male-dominated profession."
Nancy Schiesari on Hansel Mieth

"Hagel [Otto, Mieth's husband, partner, collaborator, lifelong love] became a U.S. citizen in 1945, and in 1948, Life asked them to return to their hometown in Germany, which they hadn't seen in three decades. But shortly after their return to the United States, they were asked to appear before the House Un-American Activities Committee. They refused, and although Life published their photographs from Fellbach in 1950, they received few additional magazine assignments in the charged anti- communist climate of the time."

The primary archive of Mieth and Hagel's work seems to be at the Center for Creative Photography at Univ. Arizona, where it appears to be locked and chained behind a JSTOR wall. Not just that, but the images would seem to have already been online at some past moment, and to have been subsequently taken off, or down.
