What are you going to say when they ask you the political philosophy behind TVA?
The TVA, a federally owned and chartered electric power provider, is a New Deal legacy just like Social Security.
In early studies of native nut trees, TVA recognized the possibilities of black walnut, especially the improved varieties.
TVA produced the trees and the seven Valley state extension services distributed them to farmers for test planting.
Eight years after it was begun—by the middle of 1941—with war threatening the civilized world, the TVA has become a defense arm.
