Caroline Henderson (1877-1966) was an American schoolteacher, farmer and author during the Dust Bowl.
From 1907 to her death in 1966, she farmed a land claim in the panhandle region of Oklahoma. After she got married, she farmed with her husband in Eva, Oklahoma. During their years of farming, her family weathered the droughts, dust storms, and blizzards that befell the region.
Her letters about the events of the Dust Bowl period were published in Practical Farmer and in The Atlantic Monthly. Her letters detail both the prosperity of the period before the disaster, and the loss of crops, animals and other amenities during the Dust Bowl years.
She died in 1966.
