The Work Projects Administration (W.P.A.) was created by Franklin D. Roosevelt's presidential order in 1935 and became the largest New Deal agency, employing millions of people and affecting almost everywhere in the United States. The W.P.A. provided jobs and income to unemployed Americans during the Great Depression and was integral in building up the nation's infrastructure and operating arts, media, literacy, and recreation projects for Americans.
This collection contains reports for 1939-1963 that include suggestions for activities to perform at the statewide recreation programs held for young children, a study on how leisure activities and organized recreational programs are important to participate in regularly, and instructions for teacher training.
