The Federal Writers' Project began in 1935 under President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s New Deal program, as part of the Works Progress Administration.

This collection is from the Southern California branch of the FWP and contains essays and research relating to city and county government, social and cultural institutions, commerce and industry, arts and culture, sports and recreation, local history and folklore, war and civilian defense, and municipalities and cities, as well as numerous other subjects used toward FWP assignments. The program ended in 1943 after state and federal sponsorship halted.
