Mar. 4th in Gennett History, 1933: President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s Inaugural Address

Mar. 4th in Gennett History, 1933: President Franklin Delano Roosevelt made his first inaugural address in Washington, DC. The speech featured the immortal line “The only thing we have to fear, is fear itself.” Gennett later released it in a 1941 and 1942 catalog as Gennett Historical 7. The catalog read “We introduce here out initial release of Historical and Educational recordings reproducing decisive moments of History, made as they occurred, or reproduced exclusively for Gennett by the author,” “1 double faced 16 inch 33 1/3 RPM $9.00” titled “Inaugural 3/4/33.”  Here are some photos from the 1942 catalog (from the Linda Gennett Irmscher Collection)
