Organizational History

President Franklin D. Roosevelt established the Works Progress Administration (WPA) in 1935 as a part of his New Deal to curtail the Depression's effects on the United States. The WPA attempted to provide the unemployed with jobs that allowed individuals to preserve skills or talents.

The Federal Writers' Project (FWP), one branch of the WPA, provided work for over 6,600 unemployed writers, journalists, editors and researchers throughout the United States. Directed by Henry G. Alsberg in Washington, the FWP concentrated its efforts on the American Guide Series, comprised of travel guides for every state and for numerous municipalities and regions. The guides contained material on regional and state history, architecture, geography and commerce. Other FWP writers worked on smaller local projects, including ethnic studies, folklore collections, nature studies and local history.

California's FWP produced California: A Guide to the Golden State, as well as guides to San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, Santa Barbara, Monterey and Death Valley. In Orange County, the FWP created "A History of Orange County, California" (1936). Less than fifty years old at the time, Orange County had many living early settlers who contributed information to the historical compilation.

The WPA in Orange County also employed anthropologists and archeologists who excavated several sites and compiled reports and lists of artifacts related primarily to Native Americans in the region.

When the United States entered World War II, the Depression and with it the New Deal came to an end. The new war economy resulted in low unemployment and eliminated the time and money formerly available for the types of projects undertaken by the WPA.

The Historic Sites of Cleveland Survey was a Works Progress Administration (WPA) project conducted in the 1930s that traced the growth of Cleveland, Ohio, by locating early roads, dwellings, taverns, and business places and presenting a calendar of events pertaining to these places. By bringing together data concerning historic sites, the Survey produced a body of historical information for use by librarians, schools, and research scholars. At the same time, the project provided work for unemployed people during the Great Depression.

The source of information for the Historic Sites of Cleveland Survey included official records, newspapers, directories, atlases, trade reports, travel accounts, reminiscences, biographies, letters, and miscellaneous manuscripts. The project also used secondary histories, monographs, and periodical literature.

The Works Progress Administration (WPA) of the U.S. government was the major relief agency of Franklin D. Roosevelt's "New Deal".

The Works Progress Administration was a work program for the unemployed that was created in 1935 under U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal. While critics called the WPA an extension of the dole or a device for creating a huge patronage army loyal to the Democratic Party, the stated purpose of the program was to provide useful work for millions of victims of the Great Depression and thus to preserve their skills and self-respect. The economy would in turn be stimulated by the increased purchasing power of the newly employed, whose wages under the program ranged from $15 to $90 per month.

In order to counteract the effects of the Depression, the Federal Government founded numerous agencies geared at lowering unemployment and boosting the economy. Among these were the Federal Emergency Relief Administration (FERA), created on May 12, 1933; the Civil Works Administration (CWA), established on November 9, 1933; and the Works Progress Administration (WPA-1), established on May 6, 1935. The Civil Works Administration was abolished in March, 1934, with its functions and records transferred to the Emergency Relief Program of the Federal Emergency Relief Administration. The following year (1935), the Federal Emergency Relief Administration transferred its records and some of its personnel to the Works Progress Administration, which inherited responsibility for the work relief program. The Federal Emergency Relief Administration continued to function until its expiration in December, 1935. The Works Progress Administration operated without change until 1939, at which time the President's Reorganization Plan No.I made it a part of the Federal Works Agency, changing its name to the Work Projects Administration (WPA). The Work Projects Administration was abolished on June 30, 1943.

Historical note: In the 1930s, the Works Progress Administration conducted a survey to register the graves of Kentucky veterans. These included veterans from the Revolutionary War through World War I. Field workers recorded information from the veterans' headstones, and collected additional information regarding their military service. Nearly all of Kentucky's 120 counties were included in the survey. However, the information from only thirty-nine counties was transferred from the field workers' survey forms to data cards.

The WPA Federal Writers Project was a program established in the United States in 1935 by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) as part of the New Deal struggle against the Great Depression. It provided jobs for unemployed writers, editors, and research workers. Directed by Henry G. Alsberg, it operated in all states and at one time employed 6,600 men and women. The American Guide series, the project's most important achievement, included guides for every state and territory (except Hawaii), as well as for Washington, D.C., New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, New Orleans, and Philadelphia; for several major highways (U.S. 1, Ocean Highway, Oregon Trail); and for scores of towns, villages, and counties. The state guides, encyclopaedic in scope, combined travel information with essays on geography, architecture, history, and commerce. The project also produced ethnic studies, folklore collections, local histories, nature studies-a total of more than 1,000 books and pamphlets.

Begun in 1938, the Fayette Library WPA Project was sponsored by four agencies: the United States Works Progress Administration; the Fayette Community Council; the Fayette Board of Education and the Lexington Public Library. The purpose of the Project was to circulate books to rural Fayette Countians, either through opening small temporary branches in county schools and churches or through a traveling book trailer attached to a car. After running for almost a year with a fair amount of success, the project closed in August, 1939.
