During the Depression, President Franklin Roosevelt initiated a number of programs to get people back to work. Many of these programs were under the Works Progress Administration and during this time many roads, parks, and public buildings were constructed, providing many jobs for the unemployed. There were also programs in arts and education. One such program employed women during the mid to late 1930s to make dolls that would be used as educational tools in the classroom, that portrayed the diverse countries and ethnic cultures throughout the world.

WPA (Works Progress Administration) grouping of hand-carved miniatures, handmade during the Depression using dental tools. This unique Folk Art group is in good condition overall, and individual close-up photos are available.
