Keep the New Deal Legacy Alive!
Your donations allow the Living New Deal to record the achievements of the New Deal. As we map public works across the country, we are reminding Americans, in concrete terms, what enlightened government can do to serve the people. Our documentation is aiding students learn about US history, helping preservationists save historic sites, and assisting people tracing family histories. Our tours, lectures, interviews, articles, and blog posts bring to light the New Deal’s continuing contribution to American life.
Your Contributions Keep Us Growing
Our catalogue and map have surpassed 11,000 sites and our network of research associates across the US has grown to 40 people, plus many more volunteers. In the past year alone, we have produced a beautiful pocket map and guide to New Deal San Francisco. We’ve launched a New Deal film archive with digital versions of over 100 films, several of which have been redigitized for improved quality. We have written up summaries of 60 New Deal programs and short biographies 40 New Deal leaders, as well as extensive bibliographies. In short, we have become a leading clearinghouse for New Deal information, known around the country for our work, and our website has been selected as one of the best new sites by Slate magazine!
