The Christopher DeNoon Collection for the Study of New Deal Culture

This donation includes more than 250 rare books, guides, periodicals, pamphlets, playbills, and other ephemera produced in America during Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Administration. The collection includes important materials related to New Deal programs such as the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), National Recovery Administration (NRA), Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), and Works Progress Administration (WPA), as well as leftist and rightwing critiques of FDR’s policies and projects. It is especially strong in works related to Federal One, the Federal Writers’ Project (FWP), and the Federal Theatre Project (FTP).
