Abstract: The Workers Alliance of America was formed in 1935 as a merger of predominantly socialist and communist-led unemployment councils. It represented workers from Works Progress Administration projects throughout the United States. The Cuyahoga County Workers Alliance coordinated the WPA Cleveland Newspaper Digest Project and represented the interests of its workers. This project created "The Annals of Cleveland," a collection of newspaper article abstracts that documented the history of Cleveland, Ohio, from the 1818-1876. The collection consists correspondence, newsletters, proceedings, programs, resolutions, speeches, and telegrams.
