http://www.fdrheritage.org/new_deal.htm FDR's Death On April 12, 1945 the FDR died. FDR was in his small cottage signing letters and documents while getting his portrait painted by an artist. They reminded the artist that he only had 15 more minutes. All of a sudden FDR grabbed his head from pain. FDR was having the effects of a massive cerebral hemorrhage. "Cerebral Hemorrhage is the bleeding into the substance of the cerebrum, usually in the internal capsule." Minutes later FDR died.

FDR's first term had one of the fastest periods of economic growth in modern U.S. history. However, an economic downturn during FDR's second term raised doubts about just how successful the policies actually had been.
Some of the New Deal programs did not succeed, but other programs lasted past FDR's death and some have lasted until today. The largest programs today are the Social Security System and the Securities and Exchange Commission.
The effects and success of FDR's New Deal continue to be hotly debated by economists and historians to this day.
