Reigniting the Spirit of the New Deal’s Federal Writers’ Project
The Federal Writers' Project (FWP) launched in 1935 under the Works Progress Administration (WPA). It employed thousands of out-of-work writers, researchers, historians and librarians during the Great Depression and produced hundreds of publications. Best known are the American Guides to states and cities. The FWP was largely defunded in 1939 after the House UnAmerican Activities Committee accused it of communist activities.
