Description
Concerned that the history of the migration of 350,000 "Okies" to California would be lost, Gerald Haslam, Professor of English, established the Okie Studies Project. Included are examples of the work of Charles L. Todd, a librarian in the U.S. National Archives, who collected camp songs to add to the folk music collection of the National Archives. The name of the collection was changed to the Dust Bowl Migration Archive in January, 2008.
