Tampa WPA Office Papers

The University of South Florida Libraries have archived many dozens of wonderful collections and this one detailing the activities of the Works Progress Administration office in Tampa fits in nicely with the rest of these works. The majority of the 32 documents here deal with the history of Hillsborough County, along with detailed essays on the vibrant Ybor City and its immigration history. Visitors can search the collection by keyword, image type, or text passage. There's also a browsing feature which can be used to find more curious items, such as the "autobiography of a person who insisted on writing one" (his name was Gerardo Cortina Pinera, by the way). Other documents here include a copy of field notes for the Florida Encyclopedia project, a description of "family or domestic remedies" to common ailments, and a detailed history of Hillsborough County.
