    Introduction
    The Twenties and Thirties were a dynamic period of boom and bust in American history. In the 1920s, Americans were discovering a new consumer culture. Our country was enjoying unprecedented prosperity and economic growth and undergoing social experimentation. By the 1930s, an overwhelming portion of our population learned about poverty in a very personal way. Over these years, the elusive American Dream appeared almost within reach, vanished from the hands of many, and experienced a variety of reinterpretations. As a museum curator you will give young people a feel for this turbulent period of American history!
