CALIFORNIA'S LIVING NEW DEAL PROJECT
California’s Living New Deal Project Needs Your Help!
California’s Living New Deal Project needs local experts' help to reveal the impact of the New Deal on Southern California. The project, launched last year, needs information & images related to WPA projects constructed in L.A.
From their site:
"In order to identify New Deal projects in local communities we are asking interested historical societies, libraries, museums, and individual citizens to help provide information. If you know of a New Deal project in your community please complete [this form].
Once your information is received, we will confirm the project and conduct further research if necessary. Once the New Deal project is verified it will be added to the California’s Living New Deal Project website map."
About California’s Living New Deal Project:
California’s Living New Deal Project is a collaborative venture documenting and interpreting the impact of New Deal programs on the State. We invite you to join the California Historical Society, the California Studies Center, and U.C.Berkeley's Institute for Research on Labor and Employment Library in identifying and discussing these indispensable public buildings and sites. Through this rediscovery, we will explore the history of the New Deal and consider timeless questions of civics in a living democracy.
