By Lorena Hickok
5 of 6

In 1933 Harry Hopkins asked journalist Lorena Hickok to travel through the United States and report on the state of the nation. Hickok was in the Tennessee Valley during June, 1934, and sent two reports to Hopkins recording her impression of the local scene and the local reaction to TVA.

Hickok sent a brief personal note to Mrs. Roosevelt concerning TVA during the same period.
