Franklin D. Roosevelt's Works Progress Administration Federal Writers' Project, created in 1935, provided work for the unemployed in white collar professions such as writing, research, history, art, geology and cartography. Spanish Book: Life Histories is a collection of forty interviews documenting the lives of a diversity of lower to middle class Spanish and Portuguese-speaking immigrants in New York City between 1936 and 1939.
