HISTORICAL SKETCH

The North Dakota Writers’ Project began in 1935 and was sponsored by the Division of Women’s and Professional Projects, Works Progress Administration, and the State Historical Society of North Dakota. Many of the publications planned by the North Dakota Writers’ Project were never published. Three notable exceptions are:

North Dakota: A Guide to the Northern Prairie State, 1938
A History of Richland County and the City of Wahpeton, North Dakota, 1938 sponsored by the Wahpeton Park Committee
A History of Bismarck, 1938 sponsored by the Bismarck Association of Commerce

The North Dakota Writers’ Project gathered information for other proposed publications, including a history of grazing, a book on the origin of North Dakota place names, a folklore study, and a book entitled “America Eats.” Survey work of the North Dakota Writers’ Project ended in 1942.
