The 1920s were a time of rapid economic growth in the United States. Inflation Post - WWI Much of this boom can be traced to the automobile. Land of the Automobile THE AUTOMOBILE CHANGES HOW AMERICANS LIVED: Assembly line technology cuts time and price in half! FOR EXAMPLE: In 1909 the cost of a car was $850.00 and there were approximately 8 million on the road. By 1924 a car cost $290.00 and there were 26 million cars on the roads.

Before 1920, only wealthy people could afford cars. By applying innovative manufacturing techniques, Henry Ford changed that. His affordable Model T became a car for the people. Ford made the Model T affordable by applying mass production techniques to making cars. A moving assembly line brought cars to workers, who each added

one part. Ford consulted scientific management experts to make his manufacturing process more efficient. The time to assemble a Model T dropped from 12 hours to just 90 minutes. RELATED INDUSTRIES BOOMED Over 1 million people are employed in related industries that help make cars

Discuss the most significant scandals during Hardings presidency. Explain the role that the United States played in the world during the 1920s. Terms and People Andrew Mellon Secretary of the Treasury under President Harding; favored low taxes, a balanced budget, and less business regulation

Herbert Hoover Secretary of Commerce; favored voluntary cooperation between businesses and workers Teapot Dome scandal scandal during the Harding administration in which the Secretary of the Interior leased government oil reserves to private oilmen in return for bribes Terms and People (continued)

Calvin Coolidge quiet, frugal, and honest President who took office when Harding died Washington Naval Disarmament Conference meeting held in 1921 and 1922 in which nations agreed to limit construction of large warships Kellogg-Briand Pact 1928 agreement to outlaw war as an instrument of national policy

Dawes Plan loan program to help Germany make reparations to England and France so that those countries could repay wartime loans to the United States In 1920, Warren G. Harding was elected President, promising a return to normalcy. Unlike Progressives, Harding favored business interests and reduced federal regulations.

His Secretary of the Treasury, Andrew Mellon, was for low taxes and efficiency in government. Mellon cut the federal budget from a wartime high of $18 billion to $3 billion. Harding was a popular, fun-loving president who trusted others to make decisions for him.

Some advisors, such as Mellon and Hoover, were honest, capable, and trustworthy. Others, including a group known as the Ohio Gang, were not so civic-minded. Some Scandals of Hardings Administration

Charles Forbes, head of the Veterans Administration, wasted hundreds of millions of dollars. For example, he bought overpriced, unneeded supplies. Attorney General Harry Daugherty accepted money from criminals. Secretary of the Interior Albert Fall took bribes in return for federal oil reserve leases.

The Teapot Dome scandal was the biggest scandal of Hardings administration. In 1921, Fall took control of federal oil reserves intended for the navy. He then leased those reserves to private oil companies.

Fall was sent to prison. President Harding did not live to hear all of the scandals details. He died in 1923. After Hardings death in August 1923, Vice President Calvin Coolidge became President.

Coolidge was a quiet, honest, frugal Vermonter. As President, he admired productive business leaders. Coolidge believed that the chief business of the American people is business.

Coolidge continued Mellons policies to reduce the national debt, trim the budget, and lower taxes. The country saw huge industrial profits and spectacular growth in the stock market. There was general prosperity, especially for urban Americans. Not everyone shared in the eras prosperity.

Farmers struggled as agricultural prices fell. Labor unions fought for higher pay and better working conditions. African Americans and Mexican Americans faced severe discrimination. Coolidge ignored such issues, believing it was not the

federal governments job to legislate social change. Under Harding and Coolidge, the United States played an increasingly important role as a world leader. Much of U.S. foreign policy was a response to the devastation of World War I. The Washington Naval Disarmament

Conference limited construction of large warships. The Kellogg-Briand Pact, signed by 62 countries, outlawed war. But the United States refused to join the World Court. During this period, the United States also became a world economic leader.

To protect American businesses, Harding raised tariffs on imported goods by 25 percent. European nations retaliated, creating a tariff war. The Dawes Plan loaned money to Germany so it could pay reparations to Britain and France; in turn, those countries could repay the U.S. for wartime loans. This program damaged the

reputation of the United States. 20. 3 - Social Change and Prohibition in the 1920s Objectives Compare economic and cultural life in rural America to that in urban America. Discuss changes in U.S. immigration policy in the 1920s.

John Scopes tested the law and was tried for teaching Darwinism. Who won? Although he was found guilty, Scopes was given a small fine.

In 1924, the National Origins Act set up a quota system for immigrants. For each nationality, the quota allowed up to 2 percent of 1890s total population of that nationality living in the U.S. This limited the ability of many immigrants, such as Italian and Asian people, to enter the country. Trends such as urbanization, modernism, and increasing diversity made some people lash out against change.

Beginning in 1915, there was a resurgence of the Ku Klux Klan. The Klan promoted hatred of African Americans, Jews, Catholics, and immigrants. At its height, the Klan had between 4 and 5 million members.

The Ku Klux Klan (KKK) continued *Used terrorism to intimidate African Americans Kidnappings, beatings, lynching Secretive organizationwear masks Why? *Targeted African Americans, Catholics, immigrants, Jews, and suspected radicals Red Scare boosts membershipWhy?

Life in the city and in the country became increasingly different. Farmers worked from dawn to dusk and had little time for recreation.

In cities and suburbs, people earned more money and had more time for fun. They looked for new kinds of entertainment. LEISURE TIME FADS INCLUDED: MARATHON DANCES BEAUTY CONTESTS FLAGPOLE SITTING

Women married later, had fewer children, and generally lived longer, healthier lives. Labor-saving appliances, such as electric irons and vacuum cleaners, allowed time for book clubs, charitable work, and new personal interests. Such changes benefited urban women more than rural women. THE NEW WOMEN THE FLAPPER

They moved into new fields such as banking, aviation, journalism, and medicine. Nellie Tayloe Ross of Wyoming became the first female governor. Other firsts included the first woman judge and the first woman elected to the U.S. Senate. Writers of the 1920s were called the Lost Generation because theyd lost faith in Victorian cultural values.

F. Scott Fitzgerald explored the idea of the American dream, writing that his generation had found all faiths in man shaken. Ernest Hemingway questioned concepts of personal sacrifice, glory, honor, and war and created a new style of writing. Playwright Eugene ONeill explored the subconscious mind in his plays.

20.5 - Harlem Renaissance Objectives Analyze the racial and economic philosophies of Marcus Garvey. Trace the development and impact of jazz. Discuss the themes explored by writers of the

Harlem Renaissance. Terms and People Marcus Garvey founder of the Universal Negro Improvement Association and the Back to Africa movement who promoted black pride jazz American musical art form based on improvisation that came to represent the Roaring Twenties

Louis Armstrong trumpet player who influenced the development of jazz Bessie Smith blues singer known as the Empress of the Blues Terms and People (continued) Harlem Renaissance the flowering of African American arts and literature in 1920s New York

Claude McKay Harlem Renaissance writer who showed the struggles of ordinary African Americans Langston Hughes prolific writer who celebrated African American culture and life Zora Neale Hurston folklorist and author of Their Eyes Were Watching God

Many African Americans were attracted to northern cities by dreams of a better life. They hoped to escape the poverty and racism of the South. The North offered higher wages and a middle class of African American ministers, physicians, and teachers.

Discrimination did exist in the North, however, and African Americans faced low pay, poor housing, and the threat of race riots. Harlem, in New York City, was the cultural focal point of the northern migration. In Harlem, 200,000 African Americans mixed with immigrants from Caribbean islands, such as Jamaica.

The 1920s was known as the Jazz Age. Jazz was a kind of music based on improvisation that grew out of African American blues and ragtime. It began in southern and southwestern cities, such as New Orleans.

Jazz crossed racial lines to become a uniquely American art form. New Orleans trumpet player Louis Armstrong was the unofficial ambassador of jazz. Armstrong played in New Orleans, Chicago, and New York. His expert playing

made him a legend and influenced the development of jazz. Spread by radio and phonograph records, jazz gained worldwide popularity. Duke Ellington was a popular band leader who wrote or arranged more than 2,000 pieces of music and earned international honors.

Jazz bands featured solo vocalists such as Bessie Smith, the Empress of the Blues. White composers such as Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, and George Gershwin found inspiration in jazz. Jazz and the blues were part of the Harlem Renaissance, a flowering of African American arts and literature. Novelists, poets, and artists celebrated

their culture and explored questions of race in America. Jean Toomers Cane showed the richness of African American life and folk culture. The writings of Claude McKay emphasized the dignity of African Americans and called for social and political

change. Langston Hughes, the most celebrated Harlem Renaissance writer, captured the diversity of everyday African American life in his poetry, journalism, and criticism. Zora Neale Hurston published folk tales from her native Florida. Her novel Their Eyes Were

Watching God speaks of womens longing for independence. As the Great Depression began, the Harlem Renaissance came to an end. This artistic movement had a lasting effect on the self-image of African Americans. It created a sense of group identity and solidarity among African Americans. It later became the cultural bedrock upon which the Civil Rights movement would be built.
