Dear Mr. Canova:
After having gone over the historical sketch you have prepared on Volusia County, I think it is accurate in that it conforms with the facts as accepted by a number of authorities and is in keeping with local traditions and beliefs, as far as I know.
Very sincerely,

Description

Brief history of Volusia County, Florida collected by the Works Progress Administration's Historical Records Survey.

Note to Researchers: Though the WPA field workers included extensive citations for the factual information contained in these county histories, it should be noted that these historical narratives were produced in the 1930s by federal government employees, and might reflect the inherent social biases of the era.
