We’re looking for workers who built roads, schools and canals or created paintings and statues for a federal jobs program during the 1930s and 1940s to share their experiences with us for a story about economic recovery in the New Deal.
If you worked or know living people who worked for the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), Public Works Administration (PWA), Works Progress Administration (WPA) or other New Deal programs in California, we want to hear what it was like and how it affected you.
E-mail Denis Cuff at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 925-943-8267.
Many Bay Area public buildings, roads, artworks and parks were created by New Deal work projects, including the Caldecott Tunnel, the Berkeley Rose Garden, the approach to the Golden Gate Bridge, the Alameda County courthouse in Oakland and the Contra Costa Canal.
