In this exercise, we'll be creating digital versions of a number of FDR's speeches during the 30s and 40s, including the famous -- but seldom heard -- Fireside Chats
I'll post a list on my office door, ask you to choose one, convert it to a QuickTime movie, store one copy in your unix account and ftp another copy to your folder on .xroads.
We'll be working from records which will be on reserve in the lab.
The target speeches are:
- 10/28/36: 50th anniversary of the Statue of Liberty
- 3/4/37: 2nd Inaugural
- 10/28/37: Dedication of Bonneville Dam
- 10/5/37: "Quarantine" Speech
- 4/14/38: Fireside Chat on economic conditions
- 1/4/39: Annual Message to Congress
- 6/10/40: UVA speech
