Thursday, March 13, at 7 p.m., William G. McGowan Theater
Archivist of the United States Allen Weinstein moderates a panel discussing President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's"New Deal." Its innovations were so warmly embraced by voters that later conservative presidents recognized their importance. The panel features Donald Ritchie, Senate historian and author of Electing FDR: The New Deal Campaign of 1932; Jonathan Alter, Newsweek editor and author of The Defining Moment (on FDR's first hundred days); and Allida Black, Director and Editor, The Eleanor Roosevelt Papers. Electing FDR is the first book in seventy years to examine in its entirety the 1932 presidential election that ushered in the historic New Deal; to analyze Roosevelt's campaign strategies; and to consider how candidates responded to the nation's economic crisis.
