Description
The impact of the "Great Depression" of the 1930s on the people in the state of California is presented by excerpted information from the main state agency created to assist county efforts to furnish aid through food distribution, monetary payments, and jobs. Data on counties and departmental activities starts from 1933, the creation of the State Emergency Relief Administration (SERA), through the transfer of most of its function to the Works Progress Administration (WPA) in 1939.
