Three Rivers History Explorers

Marjorie Barton will be at the Three Rivers Museum to speak to the Three Rivers History Explorers about her ongoing research into the history of the Works Progress Administration, as well as her book, “Leaning on a Legacy: the WPA in Oklahoma.”

The presentation takes place at 6:30 p.m. Jan. 28. The program will include an exhibit of Barton’s numerous photographs of WPA structures and WPA artifacts in the archives of the Three Rivers Museum.

“Leaning on a Legacy” will be available for purchase and signing at the event. The book includes approximately 200 photos. While it focuses on Oklahoma, the book also provides a picture of the WPA program nationwide.

Barton was born in Oklahoma and spent her early years here. Barton has been a public school teacher, writer and newspaper publisher. A child of the Great Depression, she has been researching the WPA all over the West for more than a decade and is currently working on several other books.

The Three Rivers History Explorers meet at 6:30 p.m. on the last Tuesday of each month at Three Rivers Museum 220 Elgin, Muskogee.

The programs are free and the public is welcome.
