Memories for me / very informative of that period.
on June 13, 2014
I liked this book, partly because I remember his election & the "gown ups" talking about it. My aunt worked in some of the WPA projects. They mended books in the city & school libraries, cleaned grain seed & made mattresses. My uncle also worked on a project for a while but not sure what it was. I think maybe replacing railroad ties. They all thought FDR was great but some other relatives who were consierably better off had no use for him at all. There is so much detail in the book you should try to read it slower than I did, more like you would read a text book. I will have to have some grandchildren show me how to check things you want to read over. I will be 87 in August & not the brightest bulb on the tree. The town I live in is about 1400 & every little town around here has a "city hall" put up by his administration. Also, numerous dams.
