Do you remember where you were when FDR died? Would you tell us where it was and what you were doing?
What were your greatest concerns or fears when you realized our President had died while we were in engaged in World War II?
Please return to
CV Library by April 16th or email me at
Thank you much!
Collinsville Librarian Dr. Susan Babbitt is asking for your help in commemorating President Franklin D. Roosevelt's era:
This year we are entering another History Channel competition for a $1,000 or a DVD player and a set of history tapes. This one is to remember the 60th anniversary of the death of FDR. It will be more difficult to win since we won last year, but I say, give it a go! I have thought of several ways to educate our students about FDR, WWII and all that was taking place at that time. I could use your help on these ideas.
Do you know about
WPA and CCC projects in the Collinsville Area?
I am open to ideas you may have for our presentation. I will need these back by April 16th for display April 16-22nd.
There will be a 4 hour documentary about President Roosevelt, FDR, A Presidency Revealed, on the History Channel April 17 and 18 at 8pm central time.
You can also go to www.historychannel.com for more information and to enter a contest for a trip to Baltimore, Washington D.C. and New York.
