The Files of the Federal Writers' Project in North Carolina

Abstract:
Unemployed writers during the Great Depression found work through the Federal Writers' Project, a New Deal program to provide financial assistants to out of work professionals. The premier publication which emerged from this program was the state guidebook. Each state published a guidebook which consisted of a general opening statement followed by a collection of significant cultural and historical landmarks.
