Discover the invisible public legacy--especially in SF--of the Great Depression in a slide/talk commemorating the 75th anniversary of President Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal. Dr. Gray Brechin is project scholar of the California Living New Deal Project--a statewide collaborative effort to identify, map and interpret those essential public works. Half a dozen agencies created to lift the United States out of the Great Depression built hundreds of socially beneficial projects we depend on today. Among them is the West Portal Library, built in 1939 by the Works Progress Administration (WPA), lovingly renovated and reopened in 2007. View and contribute to the project at
