The year 1933 is one of the most significant years in American history. The Great Depression worsens and the economy is in deep trouble. President Roosevelt takes office promising to do whatever he can to end the depression. Roosevelt's famous "Hundred Days" introduced the New Deal to America. At least a million U.S. farm families receive government relief. Gasoline is selling for 18 cents a gallon. French researchers develop a vaccine against yellow fever. The mural Man at the Crossroad by Diego Rivera is destroyed because it contains a portrait of V.I. Lenin. Frequency modulation (FM) provides static free radio reception. It was a year of invention, reform and hard times.
