A New Deal:  Roosevelt in Pop Culture

Roosevelt in Pop Culture

Franklin Roosevelt loomed large in American popular culture. Elected to four terms as America's president, he became a familiar presence on the radio and in newspapers, magazines, and newsreels. Inevitably, his well-known likeness appeared on products ranging from lamps and clocks to calendars, bookends, and jigsaw puzzles.
