Scrapbooks created by Lee A. Wallace, a white administrator for District 1 of the Works Progress Administration (WPA). Scrapbooks include printed materials and photographs documenting a variety of WPA District 1 projects supervised by Wallace. A majority of the images depict projects in various states of progress, including community centers, schools, bridges, roads, airports, utilities (sewer, water, electricity), jails, courthouses, public piers, and parks. WPA District 1 in North Carolina included Beaufort, Bertie, Camden, Craven, Currituck, Dare, Gates, Halifax, Hertford, Hyde, Martin, Northampton Pamlico, Pasquotank, Perquimans, Pitt, Tyrell, and Washington counties. Also included are images depicting local WPA staff and personnel that include women and people of color. A majority of the materials are captioned and dated. These projects were completed during a period when segregation laws required the creation of separate public facilities for white and non-white citizens. The scrapbooks contain images with captions indicating they depict work being done in majority Black communities, as well as images depicting Black citizens and workers.
