WORKS PROGRESS ADMINISTRATION HISTORICAL RECORDS SURVEY, 1935-1943

Collection contains approximately 106 cu. ft. of documents related to the Works Progress Administration Historical Records Survey in Tennessee. The collection is divided into two series: 1) administrative records and 2) records transcriptions. The material in Series I was originally processed in 1987 as RG 107, while the material in Series II remained mostly unprocessed and separated from RG 107. Because the documents in RG 107 were actually federal rather than state records, it was deaccessioned as a state record group in 2018-2019 and reaccessioned as a manuscript collection instead. The material in Series II was then reincorporated into the collection and processed.
