The Mississippi writer Eudora Welty began her career as a "junior publicity agent" for the Works Progress Administration, one of Roosevelt's "alphabet agencies." She roamed the Mississippi countryside and recorded the lives of the rural poor in the 1930s with her Rolleiflex camara. One of the extraordinary scenes in a series of haunting photographs, "The Tomato Packers' Recess" pictures a packer playing guitar, surrounded by other workers standing and sitting on crates, all singing.
