Example text

By 1933 about half of those who still clung to home mortgages were liable to eviction. People who had lost their homes slept in public parks, under bridges, even, in Arkansas, in caves. They sometimes took refuge in the shanty towns or ‘Hoovervilles’ that appeared outside large cities, living in packing cases and cardboard shacks. There were hunger marches and demonstrations in the early 1930s that sometimes produced modest improvements in particular communities, but they were difficult to sustain and many of the unemployed soon lapsed into a bitter apathy.

It was at once speedy, dramatic, constitutional and conservative. He did not seize dictatorial powers or seek to nationalise the banks, as some thought he might. On 5 March, his first full day in office, he proclaimed a national bank holiday. This bought him a few precious days in which to prepare legislation, and on 9 March he sent Congress his banking bill. Within less than eight hours it had been whisked through all the stages of that usually cumbersome body and had received the presidential signature.

President Hoover’s helplessness in response to the Slump cast an unhappy shadow over the Republican party for many years, while Roosevelt’s self-confidence and patent humanity in the face of both domestic and foreign crises served him and the Democrats well. Here was a president who seemed to feel some empathy with hungry and desperate Americans and with the victims of fascist aggression. His policies did not please all Americans, and he made his share of mistakes, but he showed that he was prepared to look for solutions and to use the powers at his disposal constructively.
