Literature, Culture and Society in Depression Era America: Archives of the Federal Writers’
The Federal Writers’ Project (FWP) was part of the New Deal Work Projects Administration. This collection reproduces some 450 plays, works of poetry, and reports published by FWP writers 1933-1943. The collection is strong in local history and description, though the well-known state guides are not included. Some of the works were reproduced for limited circulation by mimeograph. Overall, the works offer a wide-ranging view of Depression America.
