    The University of Tennessee McClung Museum of Natural History and Culture, and the Libraries received a two-year grant from the Institute for Museum and Library Services to create an on-line database of information describing photographs taken by Works Progress Administration (WPA) workers of archaeological projects conducted in preparation for Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) dam construction in the 1930s.

Photographs and field notes for the database were contributed by the McClung Museum of Natural History and Culture at the University of Tennessee, the William S. Webb Museum of Anthropology at the University of Kentucky, and the Alabama Museum of Natural History at the University of Alabama.
