Donald Richberg with NRA flag

Harris & Ewing, photographer

Richberg, executive director of the National Recovery Administration and co-author of the National Industrial Recovery Act which created it, sits at his desk beneath a “flag” created with the popular handwork method known as yo-yo. One of many NRA quilts created to celebrate this signature program of the First New Deal, we know nothing about this particular quilt.
