During the Depression era, families across America learned the real meaning of deprivation and sacrifice and community effort. It’s hard for us to imagine how awful (and deep) and how long of a period it was, but despite their dire economic straits, they remained hopeful for the future and worked every day to improve their lives. They were immigrant pioneers who came from hard times and didn’t turn and run. They are our parents and grandparents. They belong to us. And we to them. Today, whatever our problems, we enjoy conveniences they couldn’t imagine. We are the beneficiaries of their resiliency and hope for the future. The images in this collection will remind us of that heritage, keep our problems in perspective, and fill us with gratitude for the legacy of faith and tenacity gifted to us by this greatest of generations.Oh, and do us one tiny favor?

Can read a trail map, a music score, Chaucer, and a balance sheet. 1 part executive, 1 part entrepreneur, 2 parts geek, and 3 parts Dad. Love lime juice on chef salads and Rudy's BBQ sauce on my brisket.Some days I amaze myself. Other days I look for the phone while I'm still talking on it. On amazing days, I produce technical writing that helps people get things done.
