The Impact of the New Deal Money on Small Town Alabama

Video Overview
During the difficult years of the Great Depression a number of the alphabet agencies associated with the Presidency of Franklin Delano Roosevelt sought to revive the depressed economy with new construction and building programs. The amazing effect of those programs nationwide has been known for some time--facts and figures can be obtained for the incredible numbers of schools, public buildings, or the miles of roads constructed by the various agencies. However, little has been done to investigate the individual projects and their impact on the lives of small-town America. This program uses case studies to review the type of programs in Alabama associated with the New Deal and the relationships of the various agencies involved in the building projects.
