Roosevelt House’s latest exhibit celebrates the vast range of projects funded by President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s administration. Whether through brick-and-mortar or jobs in the theater, arts or education, thousands were employed, the city transformed, and morale boosted.  Hundreds of these projects can be found on the new map published by the Living New Deal, which will be featured in the exhibit and during the panel discussion.

This special discussion will feature Owen Gutfreund, Associate Professor of Urban Affairs and Planning, Hunter College (moderator); Marta Gutman, Professor of Architectural and Urban History at City College; Ira Katznelson, Ruggles Professor of Political Science and History at Columbia University and President, Social Science Research Council; William Leuchtenburg, William Rand Kenan Jr. Professor Emeritus of History at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; and Richard Walker,  Professor Emeritus, Department of Geography, University of California, Berkeley.
