Timberline Lodge is perhaps the most well-known structure built in Oregon as part of the New Deal, our country’s response to one of its greatest economic crises. But New Deal projects left a lasting mark on our regional landscape, and some renowned architects participated in them. Judith Kenny, a retired professor of Geography and Urban Studies from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, explores these projects in this virtual talk.
Check out our new map and guide to the work of the New Deal in Washington, D.C. It includes 500 New Deal sites in the District alone, highlighting 34 notable sites, and includes an inset map of the area around the National Mall which can be used for self-guided walking tours.
