... Catalog Overview Participants of this era are still alive, and their common memories of cataclysmic eventsfrom the Crash of 1929 through World War IIare still common points of reference today. Our closeness to this era should help students see how today’s problems and choices are connected to the past. Knowledge of history is the precondition of political intelligence, setting the stage for current questions about government’s role and rule, foreign policy, the continuing search for core values, and the ongoing imperative to extend the founding principles to all Americans. The Great Depression and the New Deal deserve careful attention for four reasons. First, Americans in the 1930s enduredand conqueredthe greatest economic crisis in American history. Second, the Depression wrought deep changes in people’s attitudes toward government’s responsibilities. Third, organized labor acquired new rights. Fourth, the New Deal set in place legislation that reshaped modern American capitalism.

The Great Depression
It was a time of dashed dreams and lost fortunes. But it also proved America's resilience-hardship was met by hope, and tragedy was answered with daring plans. From the stock market crash of 1929 to the recovery spurred by the coming of World War II, The Great Depression is an illuminating look at a difficult age. Americans united in the face of despair-escaping their troubles with dance marathons, helping each other on the hard road from the Dust Bowl to California's "Promised Land", and rallying behind the revolutionary policies of FDR's New Deal. The Great Depression would be useful for classes on American History, American Culture, Political Science, Economics and Civics. It is appropriate for middle school and high school. Part 3, Striking Back As the Depression lingered and the New Deal failed to live up to people's expectations, some Americans fought back against a system they felt had betrayed them. Workers everywhere went on strike and were often met with bullets. Riots rocked Harlem after rumors circulated that an African-American boy had been beaten to death for stealing from a white-owned five-and-dime. Bank robber Pretty Boy Floyd carved a place in American folklore before being gunned down by J. Edgar Hoover's FBI. Striking Back relives the desperate acts of people who had been pushed too far by the crisis.

Albany High School's Library Media Center a Pathfinder Farmstead Scene in Douglas County, NE
Photographer Arthur Rothstein. New Deal Network Introduction
During the late 1920's, there was a speculative boom which led many millions of Americans to became heavily invested in the stock market. On October 24, 1929, the stock market crashed. On this day known as Black Thursday, the market dropped bottom, and Americans quickly sold their investment shares. They did not want their investments to become worthless. On this one day, 13 million shares were sold and over the next few days, some 30 million shares were sold which seriously damaged investment markets. As a result, many banks that were heavily invested in share-buying found themselves in enormous debt. As a result, many banks became bankrupted. Businesses lost their credit lines which resulted in massive business failures and closures. Arguably, this event among many others triggered the Great Depression (1929-1939) in American history. The economic conditions were unbearable for many; jobs were scarce; jobless population rose to 13,000,000. Loss of homeownership, savings and investments caused many Americans to became destitute. An increased sense of complacency swelled in the heart of many. During this hardship, many Americans needed help and ushered in a new president, Franklin Delano Roosevelt and on his first inaugural address, March 4, 1933, he said: "...

The Great Depression in Duffy's Rocks Edward Fenton carefully and subtley crafts Duffy's Rocks as community, which like so many others, is feeling the impact of the Great Depression. The reader is presented with varying points of view about the Depression and the state of the economy. Timothy makes reference to the unemployed men he sees on the streets and struggles to understand the different opinions of the adults around him. Uncle Matt has experienced firsthand the pain of men who are willing to do any job, yet cannot find work. In direct contrast is Mr. Lachlan's opinion of jobless men. He asserts that they would "rather be on relief or boondoggle on the WPA" (p. 116). Fenton uses the contrast between Timothy's life in Duffy's Rocks and the Lachlan's life in Shadyside to emphasize the effects of the Great Depression on various socio-economic groups.
The Great Depression The Great Depression of the nineteen thirties was one of the worst events in United States history. After the infamous 1929 stock market crash, the economy completely fell apart. Thirteen million people lost their jobs and could not find work. Banks and businesses failed, leaving the entire county in great need. The Great Depression is one of the most prominently studied areas of American History; a wealth of resources are available...

He is the author of The End of Reform: New Deal Liberalism in Recession and War The Unfinished Nation: A Concise History of the American People ; and other works. Alan Brinkley
Professor of History, Columbia University QUESTION: What was the mood of America on the eve of the 1929 crash? What were the nation's expectations moving into the 1930s? ALAN BRINKLEY:
The 1920s were one of the most dynamically prosperous periods of American history up to that point, at least for those parts of the population that benefited from it. So there was enormous ebullience in the 1920s - especially among middle-class people and affluent people - about the rate of economic growth, about the creation of new industries, and of course by the end of the 1920s about the stock market itself. What we should keep in mind is that at least half the population was not benefiting at all from this new prosperity. Indeed, some large sections of the population, particularly farmers, were doing much worse than they had been doing in the decade before. So it was a very uneven prosperity.

The stock market crash of 1929 caused soup lines to become the order of the day for the skilled and unskilled alike in urban areas across the nation. African Americans in both cities and rural areas, many already living in poverty, suffered greatly from the economic depression. When Franklin Delano Roosevelt was elected in 1932, he promised a "new deal" for all Americans that would provide them with security from "the cradle to the grave." Although there were many inequities in the New Deal housing, agricultural and economic programs, blacks had opportunities to obtain employment, some in areas previously closed to them. Black writers, for example, participated in the New Deal's writing projects, while other black Americans interviewed former slaves for the Works Project Administration (WPA). These New Deal programs generated numerous documents that found their way to the Library's collections.

Previous Page Next Page The new President brought an air of cheerful confidence that quickly rallied the people to his banner. Before long, the complex of reforms known as the New Deal was well on its way. In a certain sense, it can be said that the New Deal merely introduced into the United States types of reform familiar to Englishmen, Germans, and Scandinavians for more than a generation. Moreover, the New Deal represented the culmination of a long-range trend toward abandonment of laissez faire, going back to the regulation of the railroads in the 1880s and the flood of state and national reform legislation of the Theodore Roosevelt Wilson era. What was truly novel about the New Deal was the speed with which it accomplished what elsewhere had taken whole generations. Many of the reforms were hastily drawn and weakly administered; some actually contradicted others. During the entire New Deal period, despite its speed in decision and execution, public criticism and discussion were never interrupted or suspended; in fact, the New Deal brought to the individual citizen a sharp revival of interest in government.

Previous Page Next Page As the people rallied from the initial shock and sought to examine the sources of their difficulties, they began to recognize unhealthy trends that had been unobserved beneath the prosperous facade of the 1920's. The core of the trouble had been the immense disparity between the productive powers of American industry and the ability of the American people to consume. Great innovations in productive techniques had been made during and after the war, with the result that the output of American industry had soared far beyond the purchasing capacity of American workers and farmers. The savings of the wealthy and middle classes, increasing far beyond the possibilities of sound investment, had been drawn into frantic speculation on the stock market or in real estate. The stock market collapse, therefore, had been merely the first of several detonations in which a flimsy structure of speculation had been leveled to the ground. The presidential campaign of 1932 took the form of a debate over the causes and possible remedies of the Great Depression.
