The Robert A. Caro Archive, Episode 2: "Misery Acres," Part I


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 1 of this episode, he describes "Misery Acres," an investigation he wrote for Newsday in 1963 that uncovered a land scam targeting New York retirees.
