FDR And The Great Depression:












File:FDR in 1933.jpg 


Franklin Delano Roosevelt was born in January 30, 1882, in Hyde Park, New York and died in April 12, 1945. Born into  very wealthy family, he was privileged enough to meet Grover Cleveland in the White House, and travel around the world. As he got older he had private tutors before he attended Groton (1896-1900). Then he was lucky enough to go to Harvard, (1900-1904). After that he attended Columbia Law School 1904-1907), but he decided not to stay and not graduate. After all of that schooling, he became New York Senate. Around 1913 he became Assistant Secretary Of The Navy. In 1920 he tried running for vice president for Warren Harding, but was defeated by James M. Cox. So he decided to go back to practicing law. And was elected Governor Of New York in 1929-1933.


     In 1932 Franklin won the Democratic nomination presidency, against Hoover. With John Nance Garner as his Vice President. His second election was in 1936 against Alf Landon, he still had John Nance Garner as his Vice President. His third reelection was in 1940, against Wendell Willkie. The fourth election was in 1944 against Harry S. Truman.



While he was president he helped push the world through  WorldWarII and The Great Depression. In 1933-1936 he started several economic programs called The New Deal. 91933)Trying to give work relief to the unemployed, and recover all economic drama, Roosevelt made "The First New Deal". Which was aiming for short-term recovery programs called The Alphabet Agencies. Franklin worked with and promoted or implemented banking reform laws, emergency relief programs, work relief programs, agricultural programs, and industrial reform (the NRA), a federal welfare state, as well as the end of the gold standard and prohibition.

The second New Deal (1935-36) was for labor union support, the WPA relief program, the Social Security Act, and programs to aid farmers. 


With so much practice, T he New Deal ended World War II. And Roosevelt's very words after that were said on December, 1943, "Dr. New Deal" had given way to "Dr. Win the War."
