The Smithsonian Magazine recently ran a fine article on the legacy of the Works Progress Administration (WPA) by writer Andrea Stone, When America Invested in Infrastructure, These Beautiful Landmarks Were the Result. The article features wonderful photographs and brief essays about eight famous New Deal structures, such as the Mt. Hood Timberline Lodge (OR) and Red Rock Amphitheater (CO). It quotes Bob Leighninger, author of Long-range Public Investment: The Forgotten Legacy of the New Deal and Living New Deal Research Board member and has links to our website at the Living New Deal.
Now, if we could just get the Smithsonian Institution to create a New Deal History pavilion, our dreams would be fulfilled!
