In her research about the Federal Building in
downtown Saint Paul, Emily discovered a number
of unusual tenants. During the Depression, the
Works Progress Administration funded art classes
in the building and the National Park Service
opened an architect's office that designed state
park buildings. Some of the sources Emily used
included:

Minnesota Department of Natural Resources
Minnesota Historical Society Library
Minnesota Historical Society Visual
Resources Database
New Deal & National Park Service
"Uncle Sam Worked Here" NEH-funded Exhibit
