Description

Politician Huey Long, here shown in a portrait, was well known for his populist reforms. He felt that the rich should work to help the poor. The men gathered around the portrait are then United States Secretary of the Treasury Henry Morgenthau Jr., Senator Walter George of Georgia and Senator Robert Lee Doughton of North Carolina. The common theme between each of these men is the relationship between their careers and the political influence they had with the treasury and economy.
