This subseries contains records documenting the adminstration of the FAP at the state level. It includes general correspondence and memoranda regarding state activities as well as reports of state program operations and accomplishments, field trip reports, and newsletters and bulletins from state art centers organized alphabetically by state.
This subseries contains a second set of state studies which, in addition to administrative reports, includes reports representing research and writing conducted as part of the FAP work done at the state level. The second group of reports is also arranged alphabetically by state, and then chronologically, and includes social studies conducted by members of the Federal Writers Program.
