Roosevelt House’s latest exhibit celebrates the vast range of projects funded by President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s administration. Whether brick-and-mortar or jobs in the theater, arts or education, thousands were employed, the city transformed, and morale boosted. Hundreds of these projects can be found on the new map published by the Living New Deal, which will be featured in the exhibit and during the panel discussion.
This special discussion will feature Owen Gutfreund (moderator), Hilary Ballon, Ira Katznelson, William Leuchtenburg, and Richard Walker.
