One third of a nation : Lorena Hickok reports on the Great Depression by Lorena A Hickok( Book )

15 editions published between 1981 and 2000 in English and held by 1,297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between 1933 and 1935, Lorena Hickok traveled across thirty-two states as a "confidential investigator" for Harry Hopkins, head of FDR's Federal Emergency Relief Administration. Her assignment was to gather information about the day-to-day toll the Depression was exacting on individual citizens. "One Third of a Nation" is her record, underscored by the eloquent photographs of Dorothea Lange, Walker Evans, and others, of the shocking plight of millions of unemployed and dispossessed Americans
Empty without you : the intimate letters of Eleanor Roosevelt and Lorena Hickok by Eleanor Roosevelt( Book )

9 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 866 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Perhaps as valuable as these intimations of a love affair are the glimpses this collection offers of an Eleanor Roosevelt strikingly different from the icon she has become. Although the figure who emerges in these pages is as determined and politically adept as the woman we know, she is also surprisingly sarcastic and funny, tender and vulnerable, and even judgmental and petty - all less public but no less important attributes of our most beloved first lady

The touch of magic; the story of Helen Keller's great teacher, Anne Sullivan Macy by Lorena A Hickok( Book )

7 editions published between 1961 and 1964 in English and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The prospects of life seemed bleak for Anne Sullivan when she received Captain Keller's offer to teach his daughter, Helen. The challenge was formidable as the child was deaf, dumb and blind. But, threatened with blindness herself, and terrified of having to return to the grim institution that had been her home, it was an answer to Anne's prayers. Out of the tumultuous first days, Anne Sullivan brought order to the life of the tormented girl and, through the sense of touch, illuminated it with the power of communication. The specter of poverty, the discouragements and triumphs, Anne's own unsuccessful marriage, all served only to strengthen the bond between Helen Keller and her "other self." Lorena Hickok traces the moving course of the extraordinary relationship that developed between teacher and pupil in a book that cannot fail to stir the hearts of readers
