Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The collection consists of newsletters produced by migrant workers in labor camps established by the Resettlement Administration and the Farm Security Administration in California and Washington during the 1930s and early 1940s. These newsletters document everyday operations of the camps, and provide insight into the lives of the thousands of workers who migrated to the West Coast in the wake of the Dust Bowl seeking employment.
