The Diary of Rexford G. Tugwell: The New Deal, 1932-1935


Tugwell's diary of the New Deal era is one of the most important first-hand accounts of the New Deal available. One of FDR's most intimate advisors, Tugwell provides an open account of what went on in the New Deal, particularly in the early days when programs to address the Great Depression were being devised. The diary talks openly about how programs were created, who was involved, and how FDR reacted. It also discusses such individuals as FDR, Henry Wallace, Hugh Johnson, Donald Richberg, Chester Davis, Louis Brandeis, Felix Frankfurter, Raymond Moley, and Adolf Berle. This diary gives a rare glimpse of FDR and how he treated his intimate advisors.
