New Deal Network–Dear Mrs. Roosevelt

The New Deal Network is an educational guide to the Great Depression of the 1930s. The New Deal Network is sponsored by the Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt Institute and the Institute for Learning Technologies at Teachers College/Columbia University and funded in part through a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. This link to the website discusses how children were affected by the Great Depression. Included are letters to Eleanor asking for clothes, money, bicycles, and "luxuries".
