Description
1.6 linear ft., four boxes, arranged chronologically.
Background
In winter 1931, California's economy first began to feel the full impact of nationwide depression. Transient, homeless men became a major problem in the state, and to aid them, Governor Rolph--armed with a budget surplus--had thirty labor camps created where the indigent were housed and fed while they cleared brush and built roads.
