8 • The Beacon Newspaper clipping reflec Not long ago while researching an item for genealogy, I stumbled across an old yellow newspaper clipping that ventured to reflect today’s struggling economy. That long-forgotten, brittle page offered a historical portrait of America between 1933 and 1945, a period that developed government projects during the Great Depression. By employing 3 million men nationwide, it defined a president who found a way to unite America.
