Check out my project on images of Kentucky women (http://www.kywcrh.org/projects/wpa) in a visual exhibit of photographs commissioned by the Works Progress Administration Visual Exhibit. I’ve separated them into two different compilations: Pack Horse Librarians and Women’s Training Work Centers in Kentucky. The compilations derive from the the Goodman-Paxton Photographic Collection in the Kentuckiana Digital Library.

This was part of a research project for the UK Libraries, Lexington, Kentucky. UK’s WPA collection has earned it the designation of a “Center for Excellence.”
