Biographical/Historical Note

The National Recovery Administration, also known as the NRA, was the first of several agencies to be established under authority of the National Industrial Recovery, approved on June 15, 1933. Headed by an Administrator for Industrial Recovery and subject to the general supervision at first of a Special Industrial Recovery Board and later of the National Emergency Council, the function of the NRA was to carry out the main provisions of title I of the Recovery Act. The program of the NRA had four main objectives: to spread work by reducing the number of hours; to increase consumer purchasing power by increasing total wage distribution; to stop trade practices that were similar to those already recognized as legally unfair and to limit the severity of competition without raising prices so drastically as to neutralize the increase in total wages; and to eliminate child labor. As a means of attaining these objectives, the NRA planned for the adoption of a series of codes of fair competition for the separate regulation of every important branch of trade and industry including the graphic arts industry.
