  1. I think that my grandfather worked on the Provincetown project in 1940 as a WPA worker. He also worked on something in Brockton, MA. I know that he was put on a bus with a group to the work site and then bused back. Is this something that your organization can help me with? We had many great projects completed in Brockton by the New Deal.
