Distinguished historian Michael Golay draws on a trove of original sources--including the moving, remarkably intimate, almost daily letters between Hickok and Eleanor Roosevelt--as he re-creates that extraordinary journey. Hickok traveled by car almost nonstop for eighteen months, from January 1933 to August 1934, surviving hellish dust storms, rebellions by coal workers in Pennsylvania and West Virginia, and a near revolution by Midwest farmers. A brilliant observer, Hickok wrote searing and deeply empathetic reports to Hopkins and letters to Mrs. Roosevelt that comprise an unparalleled record of the worst economic disaster in the history of the country. Historically important, they crucially influenced the scope and strategy of the Roosevelt administration's unprecedented relief efforts. America 1933 reveals Hickok's pivotal contribution to the policies of the New Deal and sheds light on her intense but ill-fated relationship with Eleanor Roosevelt and the forces that inevitably came between them."--Publisher's description. 590 Gift of Dr. Gary Jason. 600 10 Hickok, Lorena A. 600 17 Hickok, Lorena A.|2fast|0(OCoLC)fst00046640 650 0 Investigative reporting|zUnited States|xHistory|y20th century. 650 0 Depressions|y1929|zUnited States. 650 7 Depressions.|2fast|0(OCoLC)fst00890969 650 7 Economic history.|2fast|0(OCoLC)fst00901974 650 7 Investigative reporting.|2fast|0(OCoLC)fst00978154 650 7 Social conditions|2fast|0(OCoLC)fst01919811 651 0 United States|xHistory|y1933-1945. 651 0 United States|xEconomic conditions|y1918-1945. 651 0 United States|xSocial conditions|y1918-1945. 651 7 United States.|2fast|0(OCoLC)fst01204155 655 7 History.|2fast|0(OCoLC)fst01411628 910 DC 201801
