A Slice of Life in North Carolina: The WPA Historical Records Survey

Record #:
The Historical Records Survey, part of the Works Progress Administration, hired unemployed clerks, stenographers, and teachers to catalog and protect public records in an effort to aid historians, archivists, and curators. The program ran for five years between 1935 and 1940 and operated out of Raleigh. One hundred and ten workers were given the task of focusing on information from the clerk of court and register of deeds from the state's 100 counties.
