Program Title CLYDE TINGLEY: An Extraordinary Man
Program Description Mayor Clyde Tingley introduced sewers, paving, a professional fire and police force, a city owned water system, located New Mexico's first state fair in Albuquerque, brought a beach to the desert, built with New Deal money the first municipal airport and brought in the first military base to Albuquerque. An individual of immense energy, he extended his political talent to provide development to all of New Mexico. As New Deal Governor, Tingley brought New Mexico into the modern era. He maintained his friendship with President Roosevelt, controlled a political machine, and possessed the perspicacity to hire talented people. The Governor kept his promise to create private and government jobs for Depression New Mexicans. His New Deal built highways, dams, over 700 schools, laid sewers, landscaped and added necessary buildings and renovations to the state's colleges, introduced an oil and gas commission, and made tourism the number one industry and oil the second largest. With new infrastructure, New Mexico for the first time possessed the capacity to expand economic opportunities.
