Robert Delson Archive

Robert Delson (1909–1955) served as the head of the Federal Arts Project (FAP) community art center in Jacksonville, Florida in the 1930s. The archive contains government reports and typescripts that document the FAP in Florida, and includes photographs of artwork produced by Delson for inclusion in the Federal Writers’ Project book Florida: A Guide to the Southernmost State. Photographs also record works by Delson shown at world’s fairs in the 1930s, including prize medals, dioramas, and sketches for ceramic tile panels for the Florida pavilion at the New York World’s Fair. Delson’s son, Sidney, donated these materials to The Wolfsonian.
