March 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 catalog as Gennett Historical 7. The catalog read “We introduce here our 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.”
