During the Great Depression, bankers, Wall street investors, and businesses were often the
subjects of public scorn. In the interview excerpt from American Life Histories:
Manuscripts from the Federal Writers’ Project, 1936-1940, Charles Fusco, an Italian-born
munitions worker, provides a critique of the depression, the New Deal programs, and
politics in general.
First of all, what characteristics do you find in this document? What kind of historical
value do you think a document like this should have for historians? Who does Charles
Fusco blame for the depression, and who does he credit for helping people out? Which
problems of the Great Depression (1929-1939) does he mention, and which New Deal (1933-
1939) programs does he refer to? Use this source in order to discuss the Great Depression
and the New Deal (3 pages minimum.)
