The Robert A. Caro Archive, Episode 3: "Misery Acres," Part II


New-York Historical's exhibition “Turn Every Page”: Inside the Robert A. Caro Archive showcases never-before-seen highlights from life and career of Robert Caro, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author behind such masterful biographies as The Power Broker and the multi-volume series The Years of Lyndon Johnson.

Check out our ongoing video series as Caro himself explores some of the key objects in the exhibition. In part 2 of this episode, he describes Millie Sanderson, a key figure in his 1963 investigative series "Misery Acres", and how her heartbreaking story forever changed his approach to writing and reporting.
