In response to massive poverty, rampant unemployment, breadlines, and "Hooverville" shantytowns during the Great Depression, the Roosevelt administration initiated the Works Progress Administration under the leadership of Harry Hopkins as a means of putting people back to work and as a lynchpin of its New Deal program. This is a history of the WPA that describes its origins, the political controversies over its activities, its contributions to the national infrastructure and eventually to the war effort, and the cultural legacy of its arts programs.
