Brigid O'Farrell: The Coastside, the New Deal, and the Roosevelts
Brigid O’Farrell’s work on First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt has led her to the Living New Deal Project and the role of the Works Project Administration (WPA) close to home. The Living New Deal aims to inventory, map, and publicize the achievements of the New Deal and its public works across all fifty states. Cunha School in Half Moon Bay is one of those achievements.
Learn more about our local history and its place in the larger effort to combat the Great Depression in the 1930s.
Admission is free, but we appreciate your generous donation in support of the Scholarship Fund and other community programs of the Half Moon Bay Odd Fellows. This is one of an ongoing monthly series of speakers covering topics from science, history, politics, citizenship, and more.
