1933 - 1945

The Great Depression 1929-1941
The depression was world-wide. In the U.S., the banking system collapsed and 12.8 million people were unemployed. Hardest hit were youth, minorities, the elderly, and workers in the consumer durables industries. There was widespread hunger and suffering as communities ran out of charitable and government relief. FDR's "New Deal" programs, some more successful than others, helped to stem national despair and boost public confidence.

La Crise ?conomique 1929-1941
La crise s'est fait sentir ? l'?chelle mondiale. Aux ?tats-Unis, le syst?me bancaire s'est effondr? et 12,8 millions de personnes se sont retrouv?es au ch?mage. Les plus touch ont ?t? les jeunes, les minorit, les personnes ?g?es et les travailleurs des industries de biens durables. La faim et les souffrances se sont largement r?pandues une fois que les collectivit eurent ?puis? toute l'aide gouvernementale et caritative. Les programmes du New Deal de FDR, dont certains connurent plus de succ que d'autres, ont aid? ? contenir le despoir national et ? redonner confiance ? la population.

World War II
Over the course of the War, President Roosevelt practiced diplomacy by meeting personally with World Leaders. Late in the war, the president urged Congress to provide for veterans' education, unemployment, disability, and pension rights. The G.I. Bill benefitted approximately 10 million returning servicemen and women.

Deuxi?me Guerre mondiale
Pendant la guerre, le prident Roosevelt a eu recours ? la diplomatie en rencontrant personnellement les dirigeants mondiaux. Vers la fin de la guerre, le prident a press? le Congr de s'occuper des droits des v?t?rans en mati?re d'?ducation, de ch?mage, d'invalidit? et de pension. Quelque 10 millions de militaires ont profit? du G.I. Bill ? leur retour.

The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC)
The CCC was a New Deal program begun in 1933. At its peak, it provided work to revitalize America's natural resources for more than 500,000 unemployed men between the ages of 18-25. Each volunteer enrollee enlisted for an initial six-month period and was paid $30 a month, $25 of which was sent home to his family.

Le Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC)
Le CCC a ?t? un programme du New Deal commerc? en 1933. ? son apog?e, ce programme a permis ? plus de 500 000 ch?meurs de 18 ? 25 ans de travailler ? la revitalisation des ressources naturelles am?ricaines. Chaque volontaire s'engageait ? travailler pour une p?riode initiale de six mois. Il ?tait pay? 30 $ par mois, et 25 $ de ce montant ?taient envoy ? sa famille.

The Works Progress Administration (WPA)
A famous New Deal effort to relieve unemployment, The WPA included Theatre, Writers' and Art projects. Building improvements included 572,000 miles of rural roads, 85,000 buildings repaired, construction of 78,000 new bridges and viaducts, 8,000 parks, 350 airports, 40,000 buildings, and thousands of miles of city streets and sidewalks.

The End of an Era
The many experiences gained during his summers on Campobello most certainly helped mold the man who was elected to an unprecedented four terms of office as the 32nd President of the U.S. He cherished the memories of many happy summers spent here on this Canadian island. Except for brief visits in 1933, 1936, and 1939, his duties prevented him from returning. President Roosevelt died of a cerebral hemorrhage at Warm Springs, Georgia on April 12, 1945. He was 63.

La fin d'une ?poque
La multitude d'exp?riences v?cues pendant les ?t pass ? Campobello ont certainement contribu? ? modeler l'homme qui a ?t? le premier ? obtenir quatre mandats ? titre de 32e prident des ?tats-Unis. Il aimait se rappeler les souvenirs de ces ?t remplis de bonheur pass sur cette ?le canadienne. Mises ? part les br?ves visites effectu?es en 1933, 1936 et 1939, ses fonctions l'ont emp?ch? d'y retourner. Le prident Roosevelt est mort ? la suite d'une h?morragie c?r?brale ? Warm Springs (G?orgie) le 12 avril 1945. Il avait 63 ans.
