The California Historic Landmark Project Collection contains historical essays about Californian registered landmarks, monuments
and state parks. The essays were written between 1936 and 1940 as part of the W.P.A. Federal Writer's Project. In addition
to typescript essays, the collection contains research notes about sites in several California counties, particularly Monterey,
and miscellaneous administrative materials. The collection is organized in four series: 1) CALIFORNIA HISTORIC LANDMARK SERIES,
2) STATE PARKS, 3) RESEARCH NOTES, and 4) ADMINISTRATIVE MATERIALS.
Between 1936 and 1940, the California Department of Parks and Recreation in conjunction with the Federal Writers' Project,
a component of the federal Works Progress Administration, produced a series of descriptive historical essays and monographs
on a variety of the state's important landmarks, monuments and state parks.
