Winter 2016 Newsletter

In 2015 we celebrated the 80th anniversary of the Works Progress Administration. The largest and most ambitious effort of the New Deal, the WPA provided millions of Americans the opportunity to work—reviving the economy and bringing hope and progress to virtually every city, town, and rural community. In this newsletter we reflect on the New Deal’s legacy in its many forms—an extraordinary couple’s New Deal romance; setting the record straight on what really ended Great Depression; tackling the injustice of poverty in an era of great wealth. Thank you for your stories, your interest, and your support.
