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.

As a young woman of 35, Sidney Robertson proposed, organized, and directed a California Work Projects Administration project designed to survey musical traditions from a wide range of English-speaking and immigrant communities in Northern California. The result of her efforts generated a remarkable multi-format ethnographic field collection (with recordings, photographs, sketches and drawings of the musical instruments, and field notes)—the WPA California Folk Music Project (1938-1940)–that captured a unique cross-section of the music that people of many backgrounds were performing at the time.

13 PRESIDENTS

September 1, 2016

Henry A. Wallace Center at the The Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum is pleased to present an author talk and book signing with Marisa J. Futernick, author of 13 PRESIDENTS. The program will be held at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 1, 2016 in the Henry A. Wallace Center at the FDR Presidential Library and Home. Following the presentation, Futernick will be available to sign copies of her book. This event is free and open to the public.

In 2014, Marisa J. Futernick drove nearly ten thousand miles across America, visiting all thirteen of the country’s Presidential libraries along the way. 13 PRESIDENTS is the result: an artist’s book that combines photographs from the journey with a suite of short stories. Mixing fact and fiction, each President from Herbert Hoover to George W. Bush is a protagonist in this collection of unexpected portraits.

The photographs, shot on analogue film, depict the everyday details of the towns that these men are from, including the homes where they were born, and their final resting places. 13 PRESIDENTS weaves together personal narrative with wider cultural
