As the New Deal quickened in 1935, the federal government increasingly emphasized job creation along with the promotion of the arts through the Works Progress Administration. Alan and John Lomax at the Library of Congress were particularly active in collecting and promoting folk music, including Lead Belly. Pete Seeger began his folk career, part of the radical interest in folk songs.
